What is Leimert Park ? - Dwight Trible
Without blowing his own trumpet, the Californian veteran has established himself as a visionary jazz vocalist. He has moulded this reputation over 40 years at the sides of the likes of Pharaoh Sanders, Harry Belafonte and Charles Lloyd. The quiet African American has also been involved in local community music circles, as the vocal director of the Los Angeles Pan Afrikan People’s Arkestra. In 2003 a friendship with KPFK radio presenter Carlos Niño gave birth to a project which culminated in the audacious 2005 release “Love is the Answer”.
