Ayler Records News

4 new DLs. Click For Infos.

Dear all,

It’s been some time since we last gave news about what’s going on at Ayler Records.

So here it is:

4 new Download-Only releases

now available at our mp3 store

Eyal Maoz & Asaf Sirkis – Elementary Dialogues (aylDL-104)

Eyal Maoz and Asaf Sirkis share a long history of collaboration. Combining composition and improvisation, their intuitive rapport guides the way through a musical conversation full of unexpected twists and turns and sudden bursts of color and energy, yet with great emotional depth and logical coherence.

Abdelhaï Bennani / Benjamin Duboc / Didier Lasserre – In Side (aylDL-109)

Abdelhaï Bennani is a free spirit, the kind of musician who asks his fellow players not to follow his lead. But these three know each other so well, it is simply not necessary and after his recent There Starts the Future CD release, we have yet another example of Bennani’s explorations in the art of the trio.

Jacob William Quartet – Secondary Deviations (aylDL-114)

Jacob William is a Boston-based bass player, composer and improviser working to stretch the multicultural paradigm – exploring the innate, ornate and the palpitating roots of diverse musical traditions, here with his “Secondary Deviations” quartet featuring Jim Hobbs (alto sax), Forbes Graham (trumpet) and Croix Galipault (drums).

Mario Rechtern / Eric Zinman / Jane Wang / Laurence Cook – Wakte Oglaka (aylDL-115)

“A Story of War”, told in music, minimal and reduced to the just necessary yet ornamental, by four master improvisers traveling in open spaces, with nothing but some horses, a sword, a jurta and the wind, the wind, the wind, breeding the math layed out throughout that space. Free improvisation at its best.

More info at our website. Soundclips available at our mp3 store.

Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut’s Digital Box second installment

Further explorations into the ongoing work of New-York avant-garde multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Shurdut and friends (including collaborations with Joe McPhee, Blaise Siwula, Brian Osborne, Daniel Carter, Frode Gjerstad, Anders Gahnold, Tom Chess, Marc Edwards, Dave Sewelson, Marcus Cummins, Laura Cromwell, among others).

8 new recordings now available for download along with an updated linerbook. Enjoy the ride!

Coming soon

Last but not least, we’re currently preparing the release of 2 new CDs, by the Nuts Quintet (consisting of Itaru Oki and Rasul Siddik on trumpets, Didier Lasserre and Makoto Sato on drums, and led by Benjamin Duboc on bass) and then, a few weeks later, the follow-up to the Correction Trio (Sebastian Bergström – piano, Joacim Nyberg – bass, Emil Astrand-Melin – drums) first recording, released last year as a Download-Only and still available at our mp3 store.

More soon…

Thanks to all of you for your continuous support.

We need it more than ever to try and continue moving forward in bringing quality music to (y)our ears.

All the best,

Stephane & Jan
