From the sleevenotes

“Albert Ayler se meut dans l’univers musical qu’il est convenu d’appeler ‘New Thing’ avec autant de naturel et d’aisance que Charlie Parker dans celui du be-bop.”

Daniel Caux (from the sleevenotes to Albert Ayler - Nuits de la Fondation Maeght: Volume 1)

Full version of Daniel Caux’s sleevenotes (with English translation)
