Albert Ayler & Don Cherry
Vibrations

What a scoop! Two of the finest out-there American free-jazz performers, together in the same group. Don Cherry and Albert Ayler play beautifully with each other, and guess what, the rest of the quartet (Gary Peacock! Sonny Murray!) are both superb in their own right as well. Vibrations, recorded in Copenhagen in 1964, is now reissued in remastered form by ORG Music.

Albert Ayler Quartet
The Hilversum Sessions

The holy ghost of jazz, Albert Ayler, is one of the music's most influential free players, creating a monumental space, both dynamic and emotional, for the genre's avant-garde to live in. The six tracks on Hilversum Sessions were recorded in the eponymous Dutch city and show his physical prowess, the way he was able to solder his huge, overbearing sound with the subtleties of a tenorist you might not notice he had.

Albert Ayler
My Name Is Albert Ayler

The maestro of spiritual free jazz Albert Ayler reissued on Jeanne Dielman. This debut recording comes from 1964 and reveals that even this early in his career Ayler’s scathing tone and technical skills were obvious. The highlight of My Name is Albert Ayler is the tortured cover of Summertime, which the rhythm section play straight whilst Ayler goes gloriously berserk.

Albert Ayler
In Greenwich Village

An essential slice of Albert Ayler, reissued by Impulse! and Back To Black. In Greenwich Village is a live recording of Ayler, performing with cello, violin, and Henry Grimes’ bass. The 4 pieces include the lush ‘Our Prayer’ and Ayler’s wild take on ‘Truth Is Marching In’. An ecstatic performance.

Albert Ayler
Spiritual Unity

An entirely essential album here, reissued by the original label, ESP-Disk. Spiritual Unity was the record that made the world take notice of Albert Ayler, and you can hear why. Right from the first notes, Ayler declares his intent to lead his trio into the territory of no-holds-barred, freely improvised super-jazz. Fantastic stuff.
