Product Details
When one hears music discussed in regards to "vibes" and "spirits," it's usually just a pretentious put-on; modernposers trying to resurrect a long-last studio magic. Unless, that is, you're talking about The Lifeforce Trio out of Los Angeles. The vibes and spirits at play on Living Room are very much the real thing: Sly's funk and energy, Sun Ra's spacey jazz genius, the manic passion of 'Trane (Alice and John), and most of all Nino's own coolly effervescent soul. In short: this is a Living Room decorated with generations of musical vibrancy.
The Lifeforce Trio was conceived and founded by Carlos Nino (Ammoncontact, Build An Ark, Hu Vibrational, The Sound Of L.A. . . .) when he started production on celebrated soul-jazz singer Dwight Trible's Love Is The Answer in Summer of 2003. Enlisting multi-instrumentalist/songwriter and fellow Aquarian Dexter Story to be his partner in the project, Nino set out to create a progressive new sound. Many have asked who the third member of the trio is and Nino's answer is always the same, "the third member is floating." When Love Is The Answer was finished, Nino and Story, together with friends and fellow musicians, started recording sketches for a new project. The writing process was quick and spontaneous. Within several weeks, Nino started fine-tuning what would become Living Room. "Sly & The Family Stone's There's A Riot Goin' On and Fresh, Shuggie Otis's Inspiration Information, Sun Ra, John & Alice Coltrane and everything from French Impressionism to African High-Life and '60s Space Rock - to me, that's the vibration we were tuned to making Living Room," Nino mentions.
