I've (hopefully) scored another recording session with one of my musical- hero (ines). On one song/piece I've got instructions- do something a bit Albert Ayler. Now i pretty much know what he's about but do we have any Ayler experts here? I've never really studied what he does. Is there anything to look for in his style (OK- I'm going to do some homework on Spotify but is there any underlying 'style'- I'm thinking of the fact that there's actually loads of calypso and R&B underlying Ornette Coleman, even at his wierd-est... does something similar apply to Ayler or are there other things to look out for in his style beyond primal freakout) ..... Before I start my homework does anyone have any thoughts on the king of (more than a little disturbing) free jazz tenor? Saxby, this sounds like yer field.....?
