Read "The New York Art Quartet  and the Noah Howard Quartet on Ezz-thetics" reviewed by John Eyles


Although the Ezz-thetics label has been issuing a steady stream of classic albums from the '50s and '60s, some of the label's releases cannot be called classics but are of great historical interest and significance nonetheless.

Come una meteora, Albert Ayler ha attraversato il firmamento della musica neroamericana, dal 1962 al 1970. E ha lasciato il segno.
