One of my all-time favorite music documentaries is My Name Is Albert Ayler, directed by Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin in 2005. Even if you’re not into Free Jazz, that’s what Ayler stands for, you have to watch this film. It is a absolutely fascinating look into one of the most enigmatic figures in modern jazz, his life, his music and his (presumed) suicide in 1970 at the age of 34.

Trane was the Father, Pharoah was the Son, I am the Holy Ghost.

Short parts of the film are in Swedish, but most of it is in English. So, don’t hesitate, it’s raining anyway.

Say something.
