Albert Ayler: His Life and Music, by Jeff Schwartz.
This book is my attempt, as of 1992, to assemble the information available on the life of Albert Ayler. Since then, I have added a few things and attempted to correct errors. There have not been major updates. For example, relevant material from recent books on Paul Bley, Sun Ra, Perry Robinson, and Bill Dixon, has not been worked in.
Also, here is a discography.
