Exuberant 1969 free-jazz album, featuring a *chorus* for a big, bold sound. Accentuated by some very '60s guitar sounds (esp. 1,8). The singers are at the fore more than Eddie's trumpet. He solos on tracks 4 through 7 with a bright tone and almost Spanish feel.
This is one of two Eddie Gale records made for Blue Note (1969), recently reissued.
1- Joyous explosion with slower Doors-like guitar
2- Fast, w/soprano voc. Big and bold.
3- A capella intro; mid/slow jazz declarations
4- Slow, w/some nice soloing that (i think) includes Roland Alexander and Jimmy Lyons
5- Fast, w/vaguely Mexican-sounding trumpet. Starts big and loud
6- Mid/fast, tumbling instrumental
7- Mid/fast, bouncy
8- Starts with an acoustic '60s psych-rock feel ... moves into rolling mid/fast piece, where chorus & horns sing unison lines. Ends with spoken word mysicism on astrology.
