A New Collection Revisits One of Albert Ayler’s Final Performances

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Albert Ayler was born in July 1936 in Cleveland, Ohio, and died in November 1970 in New York. After a stint in the Army that brought him to Europe, his first professional recordings were made in 1962. In less than a decade, he reshaped avant-garde jazz in his own image, leaving an empty space after his death that many would argue was never filled.
