Born:

Charles Tyler was a standout baritone sax player who excelled in avant garde and free improvisation. He is best known for his work with tenor man Albert Ayler.

Read "Albert Ayler 1965: Spirits Rejoice & Bells Revisited" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Being that 2020 is more than half a century since Albert Ayler (1936-70) recorded this music, the best way to approach might be through what the Zen Buddhists call Shoshin. Roughly translated as “beginner's mind," or the ability to experience things as if for the first time. Since we cannot transport ourselves back to 1965, taking ...

Charles Tyler: Eastern Man Alone

Read "Eastern Man Alone" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Charles Tyler fa parte di quella schiera di musicisti che hanno partecipato alla rivoluzione della New Thing senza assurgere alla statura di eroi o leggendari protagonisti, ma lavorando piuttosto nell'ombra o a fianco di stelle di prima grandezza.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
