Gayle, Charles

Gayle, Charles: SHOUT! (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"Assuming you are familiar with the remarkable discography of saxophonist Charles Gayle, the first thing you are bound to notice about this recording is that it is somewhat less intense than most of his others, which have built his reputation as a scorcher. If this marks a change in direction for Gayle, however slight, the results are no less intriguing, as he is full of the usual surprises that his many admirers have come to expect. Gayle acknowledges the shift in perspective: "This album is different in that I am playing songs, in addition to playing outside. I wanted to be a little more melodic, without forcing it." He says he came to realize that playing freely without boundaries can, in some instances, be restrictive: "By constantly playing energy music I found myself becoming a victim of the music, and, ironically, even less free." A remarkable observation, to be sure, from one of the masters of Free Jazz. For this recording, Gayle has chosen the trio format, backed only by the legendary Sirone on bass and Gerald Cleaver on drums. Although the trio is not a working group, the results speak for themselves, with a tight sound and propulsive force that integrate the melodies beautifully and allow Gayle to follow his muse with unmitigated abandon."-Clean Feed
