"Albert Ayler's Bells is a 20 min revolution in jazz, recorded live at Town Hall NYC, 1965. With Albert and Donald Ayler on sax and trumpet respectfully the brothers are aided by altoist Charles Tyler, Lewis Worrell on bass and Sonny Murray on drums. The ESP label originally released 'Bells' as a one-sided transparent vinyl disc- a move that shocked the jazz avant-garde world at the time and matched the subversive and profound musical statement within. As Dan Morganstein wrote in Downbeat, July 15, 1965 - "whatever one's reaction to this music, there can be little doubt that it contained the spirit of jazz. some may dismiss it as untutored, primitive, or merely grotesque, but it certainly has the courage of its convictions."
