Summertime To Spiritual Unity - Revisited

Albert Ayler
About this album

If you buy the whole Digital Album you will get the booklet (as PDF-file) including liner notes as bonus. Dear customers: in several countries Bandcamp has to add local taxes (VAT, MWSt) to the price above. Line Up tracks #1 & 2: Albert Ayler - tenor saxophone Nils Bronsted - piano only on #1 Nils-Henning Orsted Pedersen - double bass Ronnie Gardiner - drums Line Up tracks #3-7: Albert Ayler - tenor saxophone Gary Peacock - double bass Sunny Murray - drums The two tracks selected here, from the recording My Name Is Albert Ayler: “Summertime” by George Gershwin and Ayler’s original composition “C.T.,” most likely titled for Cecil Taylor, bridge Ayler’s past and point directly toward his future. Spiritual Unity is the fusion of music and pure emotion. It is as if Ayler, Peacock, and Murray were devising their own periodic table of elements by atomizing the components of sound, substituting chords for emotions and eschew- ing any concept of dimensional time. Ayler’s compositions, like those of Thelonious Monk, were to be covered many times in upcoming performances and recordings. (Mark Corroto)
