KFJC Music Reviews
Francis Wolff, co-founder of Blue Note, personally financed the production and release of this music in 1968, but Eddie Gale’s Ghetto Music got lost after Liberty Records took over Blue Note.
Very beautiful music that brings out both the joy and pain of ghetto life. Tight instrumentals with two basses and two drums in the rhythm section, fine sax from Russell Lyle, and Eddie Gale showing his range on everything from trumpet to bird whistle. Vocals are a standout from the Noble Gale Singers.
Notes: thumb piano in track 5, especially nice vocals on track 1.
