All sorts of jazz, free jazz and improv. Never for money, always for love.
Poll those who attended the 2003 Vision Festival and the set named most
often as deserving of keynote merit is probably the one captured on
this Ayler release. Chicagoans Fred Anderson and Harrison Bankhead
took the cluttered Orensanz Art Center stage and gave a master class
in improvisatory rapport. Initially, Fred rolls out his customary
cerulean peregrinations, but Harrison’s subtle coaxing pulls the older
man out of his comfort zone. The recorded document The Great Vision Concert
may not rival my rarified memory of the event, but it’s still a handy
facsimile and simultaneously one of the most satisfying entries in
either man’s discography.
