About Eddie Gale

The death of Eddie Gale was made known to us and confirmed via social media.

Edward Gale Stevens Jr. (August 15, 1941 – July 10, 2020), better known as Eddie Gale, was an American trumpeter known for his work in free jazz, especially with the Sun Ra Arkestra.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Gale studied trumpet with Kenny Dorham. He recorded with Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Larry Young, and Elvin Jones, and performed with John Coltrane, Jackie McLean, Booker Ervin, and Illinois Jacquet. In the early 1960s he was introduced to Sun Ra by drummer Scoby Stroman. He spent many hours exposed to Sun Ra’s philosophy about music and life. Eddie explains, “Playing with Sun Ra is a great experience–from the known to the unknown. You play ideas on your instrument that you never imagine. His music provoked me to explore the use of trills, for instance, and the placement of whole tones and then a space chord–ideas you do not find in the exercise books.”

During the 1960s and 1970s, he toured and recorded extensively with Sun Ra, who influenced him greatly until Ra’s death in 1993. After a yearlong stint as artist in residence at Stanford University, Gale moved to San Jose, California in 1972.

Helping to bring jazz into the 21st century, the trumpeter made numerous appearances with Oakland hip-hop outfit The Coup, whereby Gale’s trumpet could be heard engaging with the music’s breakbeats and turntables. In the late 1990s Eddie Gale also held regular creative music workshops at the Black Dot Café, a grassroots performance space in Oakland run by artist/activist Marcel Diallo and his Black Dot Artists Collective. His collaboration with Desert Storm Veteran Dennis Kyne, that began in the 90s, helped develop Music in our schools and a free trumpet program for underserved youth in San Jose. Holding concerts with the Inner Peace Orchestra and fundraisers for musicians’ health care, Eddie Gale took the music to churches, universities and colleges.
