Albert Ayler wasn't your average Jazz artist. A mad brother, and a very strange talent, often seen as an uncontrolable prodige, you can hear in this cd a good example of his very personal vision of free jazz. You can really feel him getting into a trance and delivering the weirdest variations I've heard to date!
A funny thing is how I was introduced to this one : a fellow ad creative uses it to punish people when they start bothering him, and usually brings it as a present for people he don't like, just for the pleasure of seeing their faces when listening to it rightafter the birthday cake!
I must say that even if I eventually started to appreciate this record, the first listen is disturbing : it starts slowly, but after a few minutes, Albert gets into it and starts to whirl with his saxophone, and it's like a mad turnaround unfolding. Wicked.
