Charles Gayle [ts, p] Ksawery Wojcinski [b] Klaus Kugel [dr]


Charles Gayle - tenor saxophone, piano
Ksawery Wójciński - double bass
Klaus Kugel - drums

"There is no player on the scene today with the emotional wallop of Charles Gayle. His later discs - particularly Ancient of Days - manifest a mature improvisational talent that can stand with any saxophonist's today."
- Robert Spencer, AllAboutJazz, USA

"Kugel and Wójciński are a marvelous pair, eschewing, for the most part, traditional rhythm section roles in favor of rhythmic exploration."
- John Barron, TheJazzWord, USA

"it was a joy to get so close to the heart of jazz's free spirit which Charles Gayle exemplified with such elegance, and which was complemented with magnanimity by Wójciński and Kugel." - Geoff Winston, October 2013, UK
