Albert Ayler "The First Recordings Vol. 1"

Feels NYC

Regular price $16.99


Recorded in Stockholm on October 25, 1962, this session is one of Albert Ayler's earliest recordings, and features a European backing group he assembled during his brief stay in Sweden before returning to the States in 1963 and beginning his legendary run with ESP-Disk' and Impulse! Though his genius is not yet fully formed, one can easily hear he's headed that direction, and this rare and long out-of-print recording is an essential piece of the history of one America's most uniquely lyrical voices on the saxophone.
