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.
