The legendary avant-garde tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler(1936-70) was recorded live at Lorrach, Germany on November 7, 1966(tracks 1-5) and Salle Pleyel at Paris Jazz Festival on November 13, 1966(tracks 6-8).
With Albert Ayler(tenor saxophone) were Don Ayler(trumpet); Miche Samson(violin); William Folwell(bass) & Beaver Harris(drums).
The eight Albert Ayler tracks are an intoxicating mix of childlike themes, New Orleans marching tunes, Salvation Army bands and collective free-for-alls.
'Lorrach, Paris 1966' features 65 minutes of passionate and ecstatic jazz and is one of Albert Ayler's finest albums.

Btw ~ On November 15, 1966 this band were filmed by the BBC at the London School of Economics for the TV programme 'Jazz Goes To College'.
Disgracefully the BBC refused to broadcast the recording and later wiped the tapes,

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic mid-60s Ayler set. 15 Sept. 2005
By Michael Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Lorrach/Paris" is a collection of two live shows from November 1966-- five tracks from the Lorrach, Germany, and three from Paris, France. The two shows find Ayler's band, featuring himself on tenor sax, his brother Don on trumpet, violinist Michel Sampson, bassist William Folwell (in his first recorded work with Ayler) and drummer Beaver Harris (who was brought to Europe when Sunny Murray wouldn't go) in full flight, well recorded, and performing admirably.

By this point, Ayler had totally eschewed the free jazz vein he started in in favor of theme-based performances, decepitively simple marches with harmonized themes used as launching grounds for improvisation and expression. The brothers state the themes on their horns, often intermingling melody and countermelody, with Sampson riding counter to both of them (in a fashion reminiscent of departed bassist Gary Peacock). Supprorting this is the rather unconventional rhythm section-- Folwell is difficult to hear, but appears to be sitting in a somewhat rhythmic variant of what Sampson is doing, whereas Harris provides a platform-- his work is more rhythmically founded than previous drummers and plays straighter beat and rhythmic patterns-- it sounds as though his playing is more in the Ed Blackwell school than the Sunny Murray one. It works at times, but sometimes you really wish he'd do something more inventive.

Generally, two kinds of pieces are performed-- those with improv sections and those without-- the former state themes with intertwining, harmonizing horns and Sampson in counter, the latter do the same but feature an open improv section. Both have their merits, and the intensity of the playing is downright stunning. Truth to be told, if the bass was audible and the drumming was a bit more exciting, this would be five stars, as it is, it's quite a set. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb sonic upgrade-- 4.5 stars. 20 Sept. 2005
By Michael Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A testament to the value of remastering, the 2002 reissue of "Lorrach, Paris 1966" is in many ways like night and day over the previous issue. And I really enjoyed that issue.

Albert Ayler, as part of the Newport Jazz Festival in Europe in November 1966, took a quintet consisting of himself on tenor sax, his brother Don on trumpet, classically trained violinist Michel Samson, bassist William Folwell, and in place of Sunny Murray (who wouldn't go), drummer Beaver Harris. This band was exciting and dynamic, with the Ayler brothers intertwining around each other on theme statements and counterpoint offered from the strings. Improv often consisted of theme variation rather than your typical free jazz style improv (although there was plenty of that too), and there was an odd balance struck between the horns and the strings. In Samson and Folwell, Ayler had two string players who were confident expressing themselves in arco or pizzicato, and everything from near-drones to scrapes and pyrotechnics came forth from them. Add to this his agressive tenor with its wide vibrato and Don Ayler's insistent, compulsive trumpet and the mix was superb. Harris, while not quite the stunning drummer that several other Ayler drums was, for his part maintains a more beat-focused sound than any of Ayler's other drummers used.

Both shows are brilliant, start to finish. With the remaster (which houses the CD in a digipack with a really nice cover photo), the sound is superb, clean, exciting and dynamic. It's not quite flawless (I suspect my unhappiness with the drumming has to do with that), but it's an incredible record. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars melodious and fearless 1 Mar. 2009
By Jessamine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Lorrach, Paris 1966" represents selections from two concerts in November 1966 (Lorrach, Germany and Paris, France). The music is similar to "Slug's" and "Greenwich Village." It is oscillating, screaming, melodious, and fearless. I really like the percussion of Beaver Harris; in my opinion he successfully drives this music forward in a very different way than Sunny Murray. There are even some nice drum solos on this album, something I don't recall on the other 1966-67 releases. I can't really say much more about this; the music speaks for itself. This is a must-have disc for Ayler fans, and as good a place as any for an introduction.
