Arthur Doyle Quartet – Spiritual Healing (1995)

From the album Live at the Cooler. Recorded live at the Cooler, N.Y.C. on March 15, 1995.

Arthur Doyle‘s name appeared on a Sonic Youth song, “Kim Gordon and the Arthur Doyle Hand Cream” (originally titled “Mariah Carey and the Arthur Doyle Hand Cream”) from their album Sonic Nurse. According to Thurston Moore, the song:  juxtaposes the two extremes of Sonic Youth’s eclectic mix of influences. “We could, on the one hand, be interested in a popular figure as ubiquitous as Mariah and on the other hand, we’re obviously interested in people [like free-jazz saxophonist Arthur Doyle] that are working on the fringes of the musical world. We operate much more on the fringes and with people from that world as our peers than we do in the world of the big-time music business. Our peers are mostly people from the underground.”
