Tyler, Charles - Eastern Man Alone CD

SKU 05-ESP 1059
A classic ESP release, recorded January 2, 1967. This is the second of Tyler's two ESP releases and is probably the more original and better of the two. Tyler was best known as a sideman to Albert Ayler, but this is an interesting album as it pits his alto sax against 3 string players: David Baker-cello, Brent McKesson-bass and Kent Brinkley-bass!

"This 1967 recording by the avant-garde saxophonist -- his second for ESP-Disk -- features Tyler on alto sax with accompaniment from David Baker (cello), Brent McKesson (bass) and Kent Brinkley (bass). The album starts out with 'Cha-Lacy's Out East,' which revisits a theme from his first album as leader. The proceedings are heady free-form avant-jazz, reaching into cosmic realms with its string-heavy backing providing soaring atmospheres. Tyler cut legendary records as a sideman to Albert Ayler (Bells, Spirits Rejoice), but as a leader, proves to be one of the most advanced, challenging, and exploratory players of the late '60s avant-garde. Newly remastered with original artwork and liner notes by Clifford Allen."
