There really was no one like Albert Ayler in jazz during the 1960s. Sure, John Coltrane could play monumentally complex sax, only to jettison the learned architecture for a complete reversal of virtuosity in his last works. And Pharoah Sanders could haunt and beguile with mournful cries and yawps. But Ayler was altogether different: he took the scarcest of melodies-folk and church tunes, really-and elevated them to spiritual zeniths. The first Ayler LP I bought was the Impulse posthumous, double-LP, "Albert Ayler: The Village Concerts" (Impulse IA-9336-2), a discard from a radio station that was in great shape, looked and sounded like it had never been played. That was around 1983. I later enjoyed golden opportunities to see Ornette Coleman and Cecil Taylor perform live, each twice, though Ayler and several others were before my time.
