Lorez AlexandriaAlexandria The Great ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautiful album from Lorez Alexanderia – one of her two excellent sessions for Impulse!

One of the first big moments of Albert Ayler's work in the jazz mainstream – and a record that doesn't dim his greatness at all from the earlier sides recorded for ESP!

Brilliant late work from Ayler – 2 albums in a single set!

An excellent batch of rare material by vocalist Johnny Hartman, and a very strong set of tracks that shows a side of his work that's often ignored!
