ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1998, Free Radicals’ first CD “The Rising Tide Sinks All” warned against George W. Bush’s Iraq War four years before it started. Pakistan’s leading English newspaper, Dawn, later referred to the CD as “a premonition waiting to become true.” In 2012, Free Radicals’ fourth CD “The Freedom Fence” satirized nationalism and border walls four years before Trump made them a cornerstone of his campaign for president.
Now on its 21st year, Free Radicals presents a new CD “Outside the Comfort Zone,” that warns against a white supremacist apartheid society in which consumers are oblivious to human rights abuses going on right outside their windows.
Free Radicals is a horn-driven instrumental dance band with a commitment to peace and justice, and is the 13 time winner for “Best Jazz” in the Houston Press Music Awards.
Equally comfortable performing in clubs, street protests, punk rock house-parties, art openings, weddings, funerals, and breakdance competitions, Free Radicals prides itself in adaption, and in hitting the streets to support targeted populations for whom ‘apartheid’ is not merely a metaphor.
On the new recording, Free Radicals welcomes many guests including Harry Sheppard & Damon Choice, two elder vibraphonists who played with Benny Goodman and Sun Ra Arkestra respectively, along with a dozen other long time collaborators. Damon accompanies the band on their version of Sun Ra’s 1956 “A Call for All Demons.”

“The horn-heavy, continually evolving collective Free Radicals produces a wildly eclectic fusion that has as many influences as there are items in the Houston, Texas, pawnshop in which they honed their sound during all-night jam sessions.” - The New Yorker

“This award wining Houston crew has this weird synchronicity to predict the future in their songs, and they just might be on point again. A solid winner of the young and restless of all ages, they know how to play and aren’t afraid to take you places you’ve never been. A winner throughout---just be sure to strap in before lift off.” -Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“I’ve fallen in love with their raucous style in only 4 bars… their music isn’t just “on the edge”, it’s fallen off the cliff!” -Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews
“an intriguing listen and this band is definitely worth listening to” -Roger Farbey, All About Jazz
“Everything seems to energize by drawing on an inexhaustible source.” - Music Zoom, Italy
“The musicians are ready willing and willing to participate in various processions, demonstrations, public actions, play funerals, weddings, and dance parties.” - Jazz Square, Russia
“Free Radicals’ ‘Outside the Comfort Zone’ redefines serious jazz“ - Dodie Miller-Gould, Lemon Wire
