This program of essential Albert Ayler begins with live tracks recorded at La Cave in Cleveland in 1966, with a band made up of Don Ayler (trumpet), Frank Wright (tenor sax), Michael Samson (violin), Mutawef Shaheed (bass) and Ronald Shannon Jackson (drums). New Grass, Ayler's last studio recording for Impulse, follows. Here he took a singular approach to R 'n B and gospel accompanied by vocalist Mary Maria Parks, drummer Bernard Pretty Purdie, and electric bassist Bill Folwell.
