Better Late Than Never/Gary Cardile CD
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 remarkably 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.
