A legendary recording by tenor saxophonist Ayler with his amazing working band, recorded in Holland for radio play, here digitally remastered with new artwork, liner notes by Russ Musto.
The Hilversum session by Albert Ayler is one of those legendary recordings in free jazz. It was recorded in a Netherlands radio studio in front of a small invited audience, at the end of the Ayler Quartet\'s European tour on November 9, 1964 in front of a small invited audience. The band-Ayler, Don Cherry, Gary Peacock and Sunny Murray-had been playing Ayler\'s tunes for months and were uncanny in their ability to hear one another and improvise together at that point. It was also the last time the group would record together under Ayler\'s name as a quartet and then went out at a peak.
Unknown radio studio recodings from Hilversum, Holland, November 9, 1964, originally released on LP as Osmosis (H) 6001.
