Release notes :

“Bells” is the celebrated set that overjoyed the audience at New York’s Town Hall on May 1st, 1965. It’s a ferocious, twenty-minute romp containing excellent group improvisation and Ayler's signature military-themed melodies. The performance marks an important shift in Albert’s music: towards blurring the lines between composition and improvisation. It is also the debut recording of Charles Tyler.

Cassette Tape / 2018 reissue - Limited edition / Chrome Plus with Dolby

ESP-Disk' Cassette Collection - Officially licensed from ESP-DISK' 2018

Recorded July 17th, 1964, by New York artist Michael Snow for use as the soundtrack for his film entitled "New York Eye and Ear Control". 

1966-USA

Release notes :

Arguably the best band Albert Ayler ever had, for a very interesting 1964 collaborative freely improvised soundtrack project for Michael Snow's film of the same name.

Michael Snow, the Toronto-based filmmaker 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 an art film, NY EYE & EAR CONTROL. For his soundtrack, he assembled a group of ESP artists in his loft and recorded them on July 17, 1964.

Personnel: Albert Ayler: tenor sax / Don Cherry: trumpet, cornet / John Tchicai: alto saxophone / Roswell Rudd: trombone / Gary Peacock: bass / Sunny Murray: drums 

Tracklisting :

A1. Don's Down (1:05) A2. AY (21:24) B1. ITT (23:22)

ESP-Disk' Cassette Collection - Officially licensed from ESP-DISK' 2017

Recorded in New York City, July 10th, 1964 

*The release includes a bonus track “Vibrations” (for the cassette edition only)

1965-USA

Release notes :

Spiritual Unity, recorded on July 10, 1964, is the album that made Albert Ayler and ESP-Disk' famous (or, in some people’s eyes/ears, infamous). Mr. Ayler had already recorded in Europe and, in February ’64, in New York, but this was the first album where neither he nor his collaborators held back. It was also ESP's first jazz recording.

Spiritual Unity presented a new improvisation paradigm: looser structure, less regard for standard pitch, and no obligation to present a regular beat. Ayler’s sound was unprecedented, much rawer than any other jazz of the time. Sometimes it was expressed in squalls of untempered sound, sometimes in outbursts of poignant spontaneous melody. Meanwhile, under and around the leader’s unfettered self-expressions, bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Sunny Murray reinvented the roles of their instruments.

Personnel: Albert Ayler, tenor saxophone / Gary Peacock, bass / Sunny Murray, percussion.

Tracklisting :

Side A) 1. "Ghosts: First Variation" 2. "The Wizard" 3. "Spirits" / Side B) 1. "Ghosts: Second Variation" 2. "Vibrations" (bonus track, with Don Cherry)
