Gaby Hernandez Spirit Reflection – Vinyl LP
‘Spirit Reflection’ is the third album LP from Los Angeles singer-songwriter Gaby Hernandez. Blissful layers of instrumentation, electronics, vocal harmonies and folkloric percussion intertwine with west coast feel to create a unique, beautiful and multi-layered record. In our opinion this is a future classic, and an ‘album’ in the truest sense of the word.
‘Spirit Reflection’ features a stellar line-up of LA talent; jazz star Kamasi Washington, Stuart Howard (AKA Lapalux), Kelis and Gaslamp killer collaborator Dexter Story, plus Ninja Tune, Plug Research and Soul Jazz artist Carlos Niño aka Ammoncontact, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Gifted & Blessed all accompany Gaby, with stunning results.
Support from Gilles Peterson, Hunee, Lefto, Toshio Matsuura (U.F.O.), J-Rocc (Beat Junkies), Laurent Garnier, Osunlade, MOJO magazine, Record Collector, Nemome (BBC 6Music) and many more.
“’Spirit Reflection’ entrances with its delicate, gossamer vocals drizzled over dreamy, summery soundscapes. This could be 2017’s answer to Bebel Gilberto’s ‘Taanto Tempo’” Record Collector
“Jazzy, electronic folk, bossa nova sway and Tropicalia weirdness impress” Mojo
