Eddie Gale's Ghetto Music

Label: 4 Men With Beards

Format: Vinyl LP

Out of stock

Having developed his skills amongst the cream of New York's hard bop players (jamming with John Coltrane and Jackie McLean), Eddie Gale helped ring in jazz's controversial new thing during the ‘60s and ‘70s on a series of influential releases. His inspired trumpet playing graced Cecil Taylor's “Unit Structures,” Larry Young's “Of Peace And Love” and a series of recordings and performances with Sun Ra's Arkestra. Gale's Blue Note debut album was released in 1968, produced by Blue Note founder Francis Wolff. It’s a blend of funky grooves, a gospel street choir and late ‘60s free form freak-outs. Recommended for fans of Sun Ra & Brother Ah, Coltrane's “Love Supreme,” and Max Roach's “It's Time.”
