Ghetto Music is the debut album by American trumpeter Eddie Gale recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label.
The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 5 stars and stated “The aesthetic and cultural merits of Eddie Gale’s Ghetto Music cannot be overstated… This is an apocryphal album, one that seamlessly blends the new jazz of the ’60s with gospel, soul, and the blues… This is some of the most spiritually engaged, forward-thinking, and finely wrought music of 1968”. In 2022, in a contemporary review, Pitchfork (website) called the album ‘a spiritually charged masterpiece .., a controlled and chaotic blend of free jazz, meditative soul, and gospel’ and awarded it a 9.4 out of 10.
