It isn't strictly an Albert Ayler album but a very interesting collaborative freely improvised soundtrack project for Michael Snow's film of the same name. Recorded in July 1964 by Albert Ayler, Don Cherry, Roswell Rudd, John Tchicai, Gary Peacock and Sunny Murray. Liner notes, photos and more... digitally remastered from the original tapes.
.
Michael Snow, the Toronto based film maker and pianist and catalyst for free improvisational performers everywhere; painter, sculptor and record producer, and the pride of Canada, used the image of pianist-composer Carla Bley as the inspiration for ah art film, NY EYE & EAR CONTROL. For his sound track, he assembled a group of ESP artists in his loft, and recorded them on July 17, 1964.

Press Quotes


"Something of a missing link between Ornette Coleman’s “Free Jazz” and John Coltrane’s “Ascension,” this recording is superior to those performances in its freer, truly group-oriented format, with no specified soloists and accompanists. Joined by the trumpeter and cornetist Don Cherry, the saxophonist John Tchicai, and the trombonist Roswell Rudd, as well as by Peacock and Murray, Ayler guides the group through the powerful authority of his playing; the riotous revelry joins the joy of New Orleans traditions to the urbane furies of the day." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker


"Ayler's wide-vibrato wail, gutbucket honks and folksy abstractions are all here, but they're constantly goading and commented on by Tchicai's slinky repetition, Rudd's braying tailgate and Cherry's darting bebop shards." - Clifford Allen, All About Jazz
