Gonzalez Yells at Eels, Dennis: Resurrection and Life (Ayler)
Label: Ayler    
Released in: Sweden    

"In August of 2009, drummer Alvin Fielder, the legendary AACM founder, was near death, seemingly at the end of a long and productive life. Indeed he had already died several times, only to be brought back by doctors each time during a grueling seven months of grave illness. After his amazing recuperation, the 76-year-old living treasure travelled to Dallas during the summer of 2010 (and then again in September 2011), specifically to visit trumpeter Dennis González and sons (contrabassist Aaron, and vibraphonist/drummer Stefan) and work on this Yells At Eels project, with several days of rehearsal, recording and relaxation, along with the talented young trombonist Gaika James, joining the González clan on these occasions and providing the perfect sound to round out the quintet. The aptly named Resurrection and Life presents the most inspired moments of these Texan sessions."-Ayler Records
