"Just a few months before Albert Ayler presumably jumped to his death from the Statue of Liberty ferry into the frigid November waters of NYC's East River he was on stage for two energy filled nights at the Fondation de Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France. Little did he know at the time that the recordings from these live performances would be his last. Although the band is not of the same calibre as some of his earlier ensembles, Ayler -- largely with the help of Call Cobbs on piano -- still manages one of the best live performances of his career. Although he had spent recent years flirting with R&B, here Ayler returns to the free jazz splendor of his ESP-Disk recordings playing classics from this period like 'Spirits', 'Holy Family' and 'Spirits Rejoice.' Originally released on the French Shandar label in 1970." Also with Steve Tintweiss (bass) and Allen Blairman (drums). White vinyl LP in clear plastic sleeve with red lettering. Limited edition 500 copies.
