about

This 1967 recording by the avant-garde saxophonist -- his second for ESP-Disk' -- features Tyler on alto sax with accompaniment from David Baker (cello), Brent McKesson (bass) and Kent Brinkley (bass). The album starts out with 'Cha-Lacy's Out East' which revisits a theme from his first album as leader, (ESP 1029 Charles Tyler Ensemble). The proceedings are heady free-form avant-jazz, reaching into cosmic realms with it's string-heavy backing providing soaring atmospheres. Tyler cut legendary records as a sideman to Albert Ayler (ESP 1010 Bells, ESP 1020 Spirits Rejoice), but as a leader, proves to be one of the most advanced, challenging, and exploratory players of the late '60s avant-garde. Newly remastered with original artwork & liner notes by Clifford Allen.

Press Quotes:

"Tyler's second ESP-Disk album "Eastern Man Alone" was recorded in 1967. This record should have been called The Psychedelic Sounds Of Charles Tyler because that's just what it is, high energy trip music that will space you right out like it does for me and I haven't used drugs in over 20 years!!" - Julian Cope, Head Heritage



"Charles Tyler's second session as a leader has much more playing time than his first effort (48 minutes as opposed to 29) and more of an original concept with eccentric melodies and sound explorations on four of his originals." - Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
