First House is the final recordings from free jazz legend and Birmingham, Alabama native, Arthur Doyle. The LP was recorded live at the Stone July 11, 2012 and these six pieces are backed by HIS NEW QUIET SCREAMERS, a Brooklyn-based ensemble adding muscle and movement to Doyle’s always already free, non-linear saxophone, flute and vocal lines. His New Quiet Screamers consists of an acclaimed ensemble of musicians with a wide array of history and associations. Members have played with and/or include: Sunwatchers, Dark Meat, First's Western Ennisphere, Matana Roberts, among others. This gatefold LP includes a commissioned essay from noted Jazz historian Clifford Allen. Doyle’s final recordings offer what Allen characterizes as a kind of “unfurling” of the free jazz lexicon, offering insights on “the spidery architecture of an obliquely referenced standard” that defined this enigmatic artist’s entire career. Standard and experimental improvisation alike, First House offers a window on Doyle’s last performances, an artist very much at the top of his playing and artistic form.
