Had he not died in 1970, Albert Ayler would have been 75 on July 13 2001.
AS Archie Shepp tells it. ‘Brother Albert Ayler is not gone from us. He’s somewhere now telling it like it is. and his golden horn shrieks out the sound of his ghosts. the celestial host sways to the rhythm of Murray’s thund’ring drum. Good spirits everywehere rejoice!’
