Artist: DOYLE, ARTHUR
Title: First House
Format: LP
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"First House is the final recordings from free jazz legend and Birmingham, Alabama native, Arthur Doyle. The LP was recorded live at the Stone July 11, 2012 and these six pieces are backed by His New Quiet Screamers, a Brooklyn-based ensemble adding muscle and movement to Doyles always already free, non-linear saxophone, flute and vocal lines. Born in Birmingham in 1944, Doyle studied Music Education at Tennessee State University in Nashville. In his early years, Doyle worked with a wide array of musicians and in a broad range of musical styles, from R&B to soul to traditional jazz, collaborating with everyone from future Sun Ra Arkestra trumpeter Walter Miller to funk-soul-disco diva Gladys Knight. Doyle officially emerged on the international jazz scene, however, playing on Noah Howards iconic The Black Ark (1968), and later on Milford Gravess 1976 IPS LP Babi (1977). In 1978, Doyle debuted as a band leader and soloist with Alabama Feeling, released on Charles Tylers Ak-Ba label. Alabama Feeling features Charles Stephens (of the Sun Ra Arkestra) on trombone, drummers Rashied Sinan and Bruce Moore, and bassist Richard Williams. After the release of Alabama Feeling, Doyle continued to ignore boundaries and generic conventions, playing with Rudolph Grey as part of The Blue Humans, which introduced his music to NYCs downtown and no-wave scenes, including the likes of Lee Ranaldo, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore. In the early 1990s, Doyles work was re-introduced to another generation, through releases for labels like Ecstatic Peace and Audible Hiss. Since the late 90s, Doyle continued a fevered pace in terms of his collaborations, most notably with Sunny Murray, Hamid Drake, Takahesi Mizutani (of the Les Rallizes Denudes) and Sabu Toyozumi, among many others. His New Quiet Screamers consists of an acclaimed ensemble of musicians with a wide array of history and associations. Members have played with and/or include: Sunwatchers, Dark Meat, Firsts Western Ennisphere, Matana Roberts, among others. This gatefold LP includes a commissioned essay from noted jazz historian Clifford Allen who describes His New Quiet Screamers as vault[ing] and envelop[ing] Doyles bursts of sound to the point where Doyle sounds positively invigorated. Doyles final recordings offer what Allen characterizes as a kind of unfurling of the free jazz lexicon, offering insights on the spidery architecture of an obliquely referenced standard that defined this enigmatic artists entire career. Standard and experimental improvisation alike, First House offers a window on Doyles last performances, an artist very much at the top of his playing and artistic form.” - Amish.

Title: Egghead
Format: 7"
Label: Hells Half Halo
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"arthur doyle is one of the great instinctual inventors of the american post-fire improv scene. even though he seems to have blown his lungs right off the planet, he still manages to create vastly weird tableaux of spirit, adventure and sound. his newest release is egghead, its a solo and combines his chant-vocal madness with roughshod flute passages that are as primitive as any one-string blues ever recorded by alan lomax. this is from a live tape, but it doesnt sound like it was done on the last tour with the electro-acoustic ensemble, so its origins are a bit mysterious. suffice to say that it plunges deep into the same vein as doyles recent work and should appeal to anyone who continues to believe in ecstatic propulsion." - Byron Coley.
