Eddie Gale (b. 1941, Brooklyn, NY, USA), is a jazz trumpeter. At an early age, he recalls listening to gospel and blues, with his family. As he remembers, "This was the beginning of my music career. I often participated in neighborhood singing groups where I developed a fondness for vocal ensembles." Gale joined the marching band of the local scouting troop. There he learned to play the horn and marched in parades for many years.
