Charles Gayle • Time Zones
Time Zones is Charles Gayle's first solo piano album of all original compositions. Critics have called Charles Gayle (b. 1939) "a master of musical improvisation" (Portland Tribune), and the purveyor of "a visionary music forged by spiritual exploration and sonic discovery" (Philadelphia City Paper). Although he is known primarily as a fiery tenor saxophonist with a sound that blends the spirituality of John Coltrane with the free expression of Albert Ayler, his first instrument was the piano.

Since putting his long and storied years as a homeless New York street musician behind him, and recording for the first time in the late 1980's, he has steadily integrated piano into his performances, leading AllAboutJazz.com reviewer Dennis Hollingsworth to declare, "Charles Gayle is without question one of the most intriguing figures in modern jazz today. Like with his saxophone playing, Gayle uses the entire range of the piano. His style is highly personal, yet firmly grounded in the playing of past masters like Art Tatum and Bud Powell."
