Limited Edition Clear Vinyl LP - Only 300 Copies!

Recorded in Stockholm in 1962, and originally released on Sonet Records, these sessions stand as Albert Ayler's first step into a new sonic world. This was when Ayler was still dealing with classic jazz standards such as "I'll Remember April", Miles Davis's "Tune Up" and "Rollins' Tune", a declared tribute to the older master Sonny Rollins. His already super-strong tenor sax voice dominates a quiet, almost shy, local rhythm section featuring Torbjorn Hultcrant on bass and Sune Spangberg on drums. This was just before stepping into his unique, hyper energetic and ecstatic form of free jazz.

This was Ayler sowing the seeds of a revolution to come.
