Christmas classics in free jazz performance
The American Jazz saxophonist Mars Williams celebrates Christmas in the Netherlands with his concert An Ayler Xmas. He isn’t alone; he invites various Dutch musicians to come together and play Christmas classics. Together with different musicians on wind instruments and supporting band, they pay tribute to the founding father of the free jazz movement, Albert Ayler. Forget about Christmas bells and children’s choirs, O Denneboom is apparently a great tune for a free jazz performance!
