Some ears think Cherry additionnaly plays cornet.
A long release history... Also possibly avalaible as I Grandi del Jazz 12.
Ayler, in a 1966 interview with Nat Hentoff, gives us some light:
"I like to play something - like the beginning of Ghosts - that people can hum [...] Folk melodies that all the people would understand. I'd use these melodies as a start and have different simple melodies going in and out of a piece. From simple melody to complicated textures to simplicity again and then back to the more dense, the more complex sounds."
