This Perfect Day
Bill Gable - 'This Perfect Day' 'This Perfect Day' represents the first solo album by singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Bill Gable since his highly-acclaimed Private Music/BMG international release 'There Were Signs' in 1989. Singled out by Billboard Magazine for his 'superb lyrical imagery,' selections from Gable's 'There Were Signs' were featured on well over 150 AC/NAC/jazz U.S. stations during the early 1990s, with a video for the single 'Go Ahead And Run' appearing in medium rotation on VH1. In addition to his solo career, Gable has composed and performed with the Yellowjackets on 3 Grammy-nominated recordings and has written songs for artists as diverse as Chicago and Branford Marsalis. As with Gable's previous work, 'This Perfect Day' combines intelligent and artful songwriting with a striking mix of jazz and world music, featuring Gable on vocals, guitars and keyboards, Steve Rodby (Pat Metheny Group) on bass, Tom Brechtlein (Chick Corea, Leonard Cohen) on drums, Luis Conte (Madonna, Eric Clapton) and Alex Acuna (Weather Report, U2) on percussion, Bob Sheppard (Steely Dan, Lyle Mays) on flute, and Dino Saluzzi on bandoneon. Steely Dan's Walter Becker has described Gable as 'first and foremost a great songwriter' with a 'marvelous ability to combine exotic musical elements and seemingly disparate influences into a uniquely seasoned and tasty succotash.' Jazziz Magazine has called Gable 'a groundbreaker, a force to be reckoned with...an uncompromising moral consciousness, couple with a bard's sensitivity.' 'It's the attention to musical detail and the perfect capture of mood with music that make Gable a remarkable artist,' writes Jazz Link. The Washington Times has announced 'Bill Gable is a new pop star...every song tells a story, vividly, told, coming as a surprise each time.' Listen to this album and see why Gable is regarded as one of the most uncompromising singer-songwriters working today.
