Tribute concert for New York Eye And Ear Control in New York

50 years ago in the summer of 1964, Albert Ayler brought together Don Cherry, John Tchicai, Roswell Rudd, Gary Peacock and Sunny Murray to record New York Eye And Ear Control. To commemorate that recording, on Sunday 1 June, John Pietaro is hosting a tribute concert. Performing on the day are three groups: a one off performance by The Veterans Of Free All Star Ensemble, with Daniel Carter, Karl Berger, Warren Smith, Will Connell, Ingrid Sertso plus Ken Filiano on bass. Also performing is the Ras Moshe unit, with Moshe, Dave Ross, John Pietaro and Andrew Drury, plus Matt Lavelle's 15-plus strong ensemble, 12 Houses Orchestra.

The concert takes place 3–6pm on 1 June, at New York The Firehouse Space. More details here.
