I recently a Twitter conversation about the listen-ability of the jazz musician Albert Ayler. Now I have to say up front that I love a bit of free jazz, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I suggested to my twitter colleague that a good place to start maybe with Ayler’s LP ‘Music is the Healing Force of the Universe’. Which is, let us say, a little less in your face. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I decided to do a new mix with Ayler as the jumping off point. So, if you fancy a little bit of Ayler followed by some other great tracks have a listen at: http://www.mixcloud.com/tony-todd/music-is-the-healing-force/ And, if you like the mix, please leave a comment, love and/or Tweet.
