"My Name is Albert Ayler"
Two screenings of "one of the most starkly beautiful and moving documentaries ever made about a jazz musician." (Jazz Times) Q&A with director after Thursday screening only.

My Name is Albert Ayler
Dir. Kasper Collin, 2005, 79 mins.
This film chronicles the life and times of Albert Ayler, the jazz saxophonist who influenced avant- garde jazz taking it to unexplored levels of artistic and experimental freedom. Originally from Cleveland, Ayler arrived on the New York jazz scene via a prolonged stint in Sweden where he recorded his first album in 1962. A mysterious figure in many ways, Ayler was found dead eight years later somewhere along the East River. This weighty film contemplates the man and his music and includes never before seen concert footage as well as extensive interviews with Ayler's father and brother. "Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin's melancholy, beautiful feature debut does more than just chronicle this undervalued musician; it brings Ayler and his message of spiritual unity back to life". - the Village Voice

After Thursday screening only, Q and A with director Kasper Collin.
(Playing Wednesday, Jan 19th and Thursday, Jan 20th)
