Contains The Complete July 27, 1970 Nuits de la Fondation Maeght performance.

One of the most controversial figures in the history of American music, saxophonist Albert Ayler recorded his final performance at the Fondation Maeght, in St. Paul De Vence, France on July 27, 1970. Four months later on November 25, 1970 the saxophonist was found dead, floating in New Yorks East River.

This release includes all eight tracks from the Maeght performance, featuring Ayler on tenor and soprano sax accompanied by his partner Mary Maria Parks on vocals and soprano, pianist Call Cobbs, bassist Steve Tintweiss and drummer Allen Blairman.
Ayler sounds more relaxed here than ever. For the first time he seems released from the pressure to reach the consciousness of the masses, and is happy to just play. Its a shame that he didnt have the opportunity to further develop in this direction nor the chance to work again with his dynamic new rhythm section.
