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. Now released on CD for the first time 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 of singers and late '60s free form freak-outs. (Previously deleted:3/1/05. Original release date:6/27/03) Recommended for fans of Sun Ra & Brother Ah Coltrane's Love Supreme, and Max Roach's It's Time.
