MY NAME IS ALBERT AYLER
(Kasper Collin, Sweden, 2005, Beta SP, 79 minutes)
With director Kaspar Collin in attendance Wed, Oct 26.
Saxophonist Albert Ayler was a great innovator of free jazz in the 1960s. Collaborating with such artists as Cecil Taylor and Don Cherry and championed by John Coltrane, Ayler continually pioneered new sonic territory until his untimely and still unexplained death in 1970. Seven years in the making, MY NAME IS ALBERT AYLER pieces together rare archival material and interviews for the first in-depth exploration of the jazz innovator's life and unique approach to music.
