Black Rhythm Happening (the second Blue Note album by Eddie Gale) was
released in 1969 and includes jazz heavy weight Elvin Jones on drums and
sax man Jimmy Lyons. Again the mix is a blend of soul jazz, free form
freak outs, and a gospel influenced street choir. Suggested listening
for fans of Sun Ra & Brother Ah, John Coltrane's late 60's LPs, and
Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler's more groove oriented recordings. The
original vinyl LPs go for big bucks on Ebay, this is the first time this
Blue Note album has ever been reissued on vinyl. Remastered from the
original master tapes on 180 gram vinyl. All original artwork in a
megalush gatefold sleeve featuring detailed liner notes.
Vocals parts were sung by the 'Noble Gale Singers' (as indicated in the album notes): Sylvia Bibbs, Paula Nadine Larkin, Carol Ann Robinson, Sondra Walston, Charles Davis, Joann Gale Stevens, Fulumi Prince and William Norwood. They were conducted by Fulumi Prince.
Eddie Gale, Russel Lyle, Judah Samuel and Henry Pearson were indicated as 'Noble Gale Musicians'. Others were indicated as 'Guest Musicians'.
