Album Notes
Gary began his professional career at the age of 16 as a singer/dancer/percussionist working with R&B acts in the K.C. area. During the next 30 years, Gary continued to work prefessionally, sometimes as a vocalist, but more often as a persussionist, backing some of the greatest names in Jazz
and Entertainment. Working withthe likes of Hank Crawford for 8 years,Eddie Cano (One of the fathers of Latin Jazz) for 4 years, and the award winning quartet Yoboso for 5 years whose CD"Off The Menu"Won 6 awards at the New Mexico Music Awards including Best vocal Perfomance. Some greats Gary has performed with include Grover Washington Jr., Sonny Stitt, Percy Mayfield, Sammy Davis Jr.,Ester Phillips, Herbie Mann, LesMcCann, David "Fat Head" Newman, and many others.

With "Better Late Than Never," Gary Cardile revisits his Kansas City musical roots with a seasoned and heartfelt rendering of these classics. Gary touches his listeners with his intimate treatment of ballads, his soulful blues, his humor and wit, and his driving Latin Jazz. He is surrounded by musical and personal friends as evidenced by the magical solos of Jack Lightfoot, Eddie Saunders, and Gary Nelson. Here,too,is the recording debut of Clint Ashlock, a remarkabley talented young arranger from whom you will be hearing great things. All of this builds from the reunion of the sometimes driving, sometimes sensitive, but constantly swinging rhythm section of Bert Dalton on piano, David Troncoso on bass, and Ricky Malichi on drums. Gary has won the ears and hearts of listeners in L.A.,Kansas City, Santa Fe, Alaska, Australia and now to a much wider audience through this remarkable recording.

The Nightingales

Better Late Than Never is smooth! A joy to sit back, relax, listen and just let it all sink in.

Exciting, dense and sensitive arrangements of timeless songs coupled with hot mo
Just in time..the cd Better Late Than Never brings years of musical experience and expression from a Kansas City and Santa Fe crew who have the chops to put the listener right in the middle of a powerful yet sensitive interpretation of some timeless songs. From the moment Cardile heard his first Nat King Cole album, he was absorbed in the best sounds. This release is not just about him, but about his history and relationship to the musicians that rallied around him over the years. His magnetism is demonstrated in his ability to kick back into a genre teeming with individualism, and delivers his honest interpretation and make you feel that it is all about you. Jazz, funk, latin....all these elements are brought together with syngeristic perfection to surround this talented singer with exquiste tracks. He wasn't just listening to those greats before him, he became one.
Beautiful and upbeat arrangements capture every nuance of the genre and deliver outstanding ensemble and solo performances. The talent on this cd needs to be heard, it's a revival of the best that musicianship has to offer.

Christian Ehlers

Gary Cardile latched on to a series of great songs and took them to the next level. I've heard him sing in person and I own this album, as well as his recordings with Yoboso, and he is one of the best singers out there.
