ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Another stunning album by a truly unique voice in music
Those of us lucky enough to pick up Bill Gable's debut album "There Were Signs" in the late eighties were rewarded with one of the finest albums of the decade. A genuine masterpiece that has stood the test of time. The waiting for a follow-up album has been much too long. But folks, Gable has done it again! Beautiful, sensitive and intelligent songwriting and arranged, produced and performed superbly. An amazing blend of pop, jazz and world music with Gable's distinct voice leading the way. No other artist sounds like this. Let Gable's wonderful music get under your skin and go on a musical journey you won't regret. Gable's huge talent deserves much much more attention! 5 stars and a big smile :-)

A PURE GEM
Bill Gable has been doing music for over 30 years, he has released a
memorable album over 10 years ago which is fantastic. Bill has never stopped
writing an his compositions can be found on countless records. Loads of
great musicians and friends are on it such as Steve Rodby (Pat Metheny).
Bill Gable's compositions are real pieces of poetry and art and it will
appeal to anyone who is sensitive to the music of the likes of Joni
Mitchell, James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Pat Metheny. BUY THIS ALBUM, YOU
WON'T REGRET IT!!!!!

This CD lifts one to heavenly places
Bill Gable's This Perfect Day has the ability to to touch your most vulnerable emotions while evoking a touch of melancholia. An album of remarkable depth while glimpsing divine realms. Bill Gable deserves far more recognition than he has received. I just hope that he creates more music for those of us fortunate enough to have found him.
