All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (1)

  • well-researched documentary is an impressionistic portrait of a man whose ecstatic braying tenor sax still sounds fresh.

  • Brings a sense of logic and humanity to a man whose music was as unsettling as it was untethered to the tenets of jazz.

  • The Ohio-born tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler probably would have gotten a kick out of Kasper Collin's documentary about his life.

    November 8, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Kasper Collin's film portrays a confident but troubled man, who never doubted that posterity would discover him, and consoled himself that prominent American composer Charles Ives had to work a day job.

Audience Reviews for My Name Is Albert Ayler

  • Apr 16, 2010
    sad, beautiful and truly insightful. worth watching even if you think avant/free jazz is just ridiculous noise. Ayler's dedication to his vision of new expression is eerily manic but so pure and persuasive. completely inimitable and raw, r.i.p. Albert.
