Artist: AYLER, ALBERT
Title: Holy Ghost
Format: 9CD Box Set
Label: Revenant
Country: USA
Price: $105.00
"Revanents most ambitious reissue project yet! "By 1958, Albert Ayler and his horn had made some rounds: from boy prodigy to teenage member of Little Walters Blues Band, from Little Bird of Cleveland to featured U.S. Army Band soloist. Then he resolutely set out to forget everything he ever learned about how to properly play the sax so he could channel symphonies to God out of his horn. Seeking nothing short of Truth in music, Ayler shortly became THE catalytic force in defining the sound of the tenor in Free Jazz, and was a heavy influence on John Coltranes later work. Holy Ghost is the first comprehensive attempt to construct a monument in sound to Albert Ayler, including his never-before-heard first and last recordings, book-ending rare and unissued music from every stage of his career. 9 CDs of rare and unissued recordings, 208 page full color hardbound book, new essays by Amiri Baraka, Val Wilmer, and other Ayler scholars, 10th bonus disc with Ayler as a member of the U.S. Army Band, all housed in a lavish 9.5" square by 3" deep Spirit Box cast from a hand-carved wooden original." Seven discs of live music (Hertb Katz Quintet with Ayler, Helsinki, 1962), Albert Ayler Trio (NYC, 1964), Ayler Quartet (Copenhagen, 1964; NYC, 1967), Burton Greene Quintet with Ayler (NYC, 1966), Albert Ayler Quintet (Cleveland, Berlin & Rotterdam, all 1966; Newport, 1967; Saint-Paul-de-Vence, 1970), Pharoah Sanders Ensemble with Ayler (NYC, 1968), Don Ayler Sextet w/ Ayler (NYC, 1969), Albert Ayler solo (NY, 1968). Plus 2 CDs of intereviews (1964, 1966, 1970), including a Don Cherry interview from 1971."

Artist: TAYLOR, CECIL
Title: Nefertiti, The Beautiful One Has Come
Format: Triple LP
Label: Revenant
Country: USA
Price: $35.00
"The Cafe Montmartre recordings of November 23, 1962 capture the birth of the mature Taylor style. The boppish lines of Jimmy Lyons retain ties to the past, while Sunny Murrays coruscating, arrhythmic washes point the way to the future (just as they would for Albert Ayler only a few years later). Originally issued by Freedom in 1975, Nefertiti has attained cult status as one of the crucial recordings of Taylors career." - Revenant.
