Ayler New Release: Drake / Gahnold / Parker ‘The Last Dances’. Click For Infos.

Those of you who are lucky owner of our release ”…. And William Danced” (aylCD-044) with maybe the best recorded music by William and Hamid (if you know any better, please advise us!) and with one of the few alto saxophone players who has the rare innate “Billie Holiday timing” – Anders Gahnold – will be happy to know that we now have released four new unreleased tracks from the very same recording session in Stockholm in April, 2002, and you know what we mean: this is just beautiful jazz music.
