Quintet At Slug's Saloon, Vol. 1
A live recording of Ayler’s May 1st, 1966 performance at Slugs Saloon, this LP features fresh takes on old favorites, such as “Bells”, and finds the seasoned quintet in stellar form, marching its way through Ayler’s distinctive brand of major triad melodic harmony to the greatest heights of individual expression and group improvisation.
Please note that other labels' reissues of this date, by Fruit Tree and Lone Hill, are neither authorized by the Ayler Estate, nor – in the case of the latter – musically complete.
