Charles Gayle - Touchin' on Trane
The story of Charles Gayle is a modern day Romantic legend. A veteran of the New York free jazz scene of the late 60s and early 70s, Gayle could never quite fit in with the scenes in the city. His aggressive saxophone style dominated the groups he played with at a time when the idea of the "collective" was in the air. Gayle's tenor style was as aggressive as Albert Ayler, and perhaps even more uncompromising. So somewhere in the early 70s he disappeared onto the streets and remained there for almost 20 years, playing for change and living where ever he could. In the late 1980s he was rediscovered by the manager of the Kitchen in New York and he made a triumphant return to performing and recording.
Gayle has definite scars from his years on the streets. And he also has a reputation for ideas that are not politically correct. Gayle is a born again Christian and makes no secret about it, with a heavily religious content to the titles of his albums and in some club dates, monologues at the audience about religion, morality and abortion, all fueled by his religious background. This has caused Gayle to be boycotted by some clubs. But if one can get past the politics and disagreements that you might have with his religion, Gayle is an astonishing musician. This album, Touchin' on Trane, is perhaps the best recording to introduce yourself to the wild art of this unique artist.
The trio on this group includes the marvelous William Parker on bass and Coltrane's final drummer, Rashid Ali. The combination could not be better. Parker and Ali work together like hand and glove. Parker is unique among his generation of free jazz bassists, in that he is not afraid of a groove.

Unlike other reviews, I believe this set, more than anything else I've heard, carries on the spirit of Coltrane. This music does "TOUCH" on Trane from time to time. With Ali (a former drummer for Trane) and Parker (a Garrison student) as a rhythm section there are some obvios references to Trane. Gayle's playing here is also in that tradition. While Gayle's Live From the Knitting factory sets have a strong Ayler feel, I don't find that to be the case on this one. And the reference to Coleman is strange since Gayle's tone and playing style bear no relation to Ornette.
Its a great CD, not nearly as "out" as Gayles other work.

Although it is named after John Coltrane, this album owes more to Albert Ayler and Ornette Coleman. The fact that Rashied Ali plays on it is sure to draw comparison to late period Coltrane, but Gayle plays more anger and less delicacy than Coltrane, which makes the overall feel of this album thoroughly modern. To add to this asthetic, William Parker plays with unrelenting endurance to provide a solid, though thundering, foundation for the trio. This album is no stretch for Ali. He plays with usual graceful explosiveness (how many crash cymbals does that guy have?) This is the quintessential Charles Gayle album.

If you like late Coltrane - particularly if you appreciate Ali's drumming - you can't miss with this CD. I have listened to it regularly for a few years now, and it really represents a peak for all these artists.

This isn't "energy music" (a term of questionable value to begin with), this is a group of artists who understood the essence of late Coltrane and brought more of it forward.

It is a great place to start with the solo catalogs of any of these artists, and also fantastic if you have all the late Coltrane and are looking for something new to give you *that feeling*.

Yes this is free jazz and therefore is not for everybody and is for those who have really delved into music and can get into something rather avante garde. But if you have made that journey and are ready for something like that this is IT! I have never heard a drummer improv so well with the sax and just sound so unique and vibrant to say nothing of the sax itself. Listen to the first track and you know you have heard something unlike anything else you have heard before. Very little in music is so consistently surprising as this cd. It is not easy listening and I would recommend listening to it in pieces at first. I am not certain what it is about this cd but it just has something. If you like things like Andrew Hill or Dolphy or Vienna Art Orchestra you maybe ready for something like this...maybe. Give it a chance and see.
