This is a very interesting set, music that was freely improvised and used as the soundtrack for the 34-minute short film New York Eye and Ear Control
. Tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler
leads the all-star sextet (which also includes trumpeter Don Cherry
, altoist John Tchicai
, trombonist Roswell Rudd
, bassist Gary Peacock
and drummer Sunny Murray
) on two lengthy jams. The music is fiery but with enough colorful moments to hold one's interest throughout.
