Backed by the exemplary power duo of bassist Dominic Duval and drummer Whit Dickey, Finn spins a wondrous tale of adventure, focused and direct. Opening the Gates was recorded at two sessions in his home a couple months apart, and Finn explains in the liner notes that there were no rehearsals and every track was a first take, except "Spinning Pyramids Propelled," which was a second take. There is a consistently forward-directed thrust to every piece, as the saxophonist muscles himself with unrelenting forcefulness. Finn is not just a powerhouse, though
James Finn, Whit Dickey and Dominic Duval recorded some tracks in Finn's house that grew out of the moment's inspiration. Cadence wanted more, and so this record came to be. Fate dealt its hand and the gates to Finn's debut were opened. Finn has a Coltranesque sound with a nod to the tributaries of Pharoah Sanders and Archie Shepp. The volatility is juxtaposed with a sharp edge, but Finn also brings in warm contours that give his sound a wholesome balance.

The James Finn Trio consists of James Finn, Dominic Duval and Whit Dickey. Saxophonist James Finn was born in Brooklyn in 1956. Legendary saxophonist JR Monterose was a crucial early mentor; later teachers included Sir Roland Hanna, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, and Andrew Cyrille. Finn emerged on disc unusually late, with the powerful Opening the Gates (Cadence, 2004), a trio album with Dominic Duval and Whit Dickey. It was followed in quick succession by Faith in a Seed (CIMP, 2004) and Plaza de Toros (Clean Feed, 2005), and a series of concert recordings issued on Finn’s own CDR label Gingko Leaf: The Last Matador, Into the Afterworld, Life at the Via Della Pace, Inside Eye and In Stravinsky’s House.

Erst relativ spät hatte Finn Gelegenheit, Aufnahmen unter eigenem Namen einzuspielen; 2003 nahm er für Cadence Jazz Records das Trio-Album Opening the Gates auf, an dem Dominic Duval und Whit Dickey mitwirkten. Ihm folgten das im Dezember 2003 aufgenommene Album Plaza de Toros (auf Clean Feed) und Faith in a Seed (auf CIMP, 2004); Schlagzeuger war hier Warren Smith. Auf seinem eigenen Label Gingko Leaf veröffentlichte Finn eine Reihe von (The Last Matador, Into the Afterworld, Life at the Via Della Pace, Inside Eye und In Stravinsky’s House).
