I was introduced to Albert Ayler only last week and we have since developed a wonderful love affair. I must admit that I am slightly ashamed that I’ve only just been exposed to such talent. His music is different from anything that I have listened to before and it really does provide a little space in which to escape from the world and the many stresses which are so prevalent in my life.
This particular album by Ayler is a compilation of spiritual songs and popular church choruses with an Ayler twist. A wonderful twist.
