Albert Ayler Quartet: European Radio Studio Recordings 1964 (CD: hatOLOGY)
1964 was Ayler's annus mirabilis. The epochal Spiritual Unity, featuring a trio with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Sunny Murray, instituted his connection with ESP-Disk, consolidated by New York Eye and Ear Control, Spirits Rejoice, and Bells. In summer 1964, trumpeter Don Cherry joined Ayler's group, and his dancing faux-naïve style provided an inspired contrast to the leader. In September, the new quartet was invited for a brief Scandinavian tour which extended to the Netherlands. It resulted in the two legendary sessions reissued here. (Harmonia Mundi)

Albert Ayler: Stockholm, Berlin 1966 (CD: hatOLOGY)
Albert Ayler's 1966 European tour produced several of the most inspired concerts of his sadly abbreviated career. Of the surviving tapes from the tour, those from Berlin have been the most abused, while those from Stockholm are all but unknown.This is the first release of these performances, in digitally remastered sound, to be approved by and officially and legally licensed from the Ayler Estate and the copyright holders of these tapes. – John Litweiler

Albert Ayler’s two-week tour of Europe in November, 1966, most of it with that year’s annual “Newport in Europe” package, was a high point of this great, tragic artist’s career. Now that his innovations have been so influential in 21st-century jazz, younger listeners may not feel the exhilarating impact that his music had at the time. The nightly concerts featured a succession of stars – Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Illinois Jacquet, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins. Following these main stream artists, the final act, the show’s only avant-garde act, blew away audiences with Ayler’s gigantic tenor saxophone sound, the liberated unique sound of his group, its sweet-singing repertoire.

Wherever they played, said the Dutch violinist Michel Samson, the crowds went wild with delight, “almost like with the Beatles.” (Harmonia Mundi)
