13 Miniatures for Albert Ayler

The live recording 13 Miniatures for Albert Ayler finds some of the creative improvised music world's finest players paying homage to the legendary free jazz saxophonist. Captured in December 2010 at Fondation Cartier in Paris, the release is a generous excerpt from an Ayler tribute concert held in recognition of the 40th anniversary of his passing. True to the artist's uncompromising spirit, 13 Miniatures for Albert Ayler plays out as a series of improvisations from players such as reedmen Joe McPhee, Evan Parker, John Tchicai, and Michel Portal, trumpeter Jean-Luc Cappozzo, and bassist Barre Phillips, as well as singers and spoken word performers. While the personnel varies from track to track -- the musicians shuffle around from solo to duo to large-group settings -- the objective of 13 Miniatures for Albert Ayler is clear: to celebrate the life of this visionary artist by raising the roof with sounds that echo his ferocious, spiritual, transcendent musicality and illustrate how, 40 years after his death, his music continues to be a guiding light. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
