Ayler also resisted the standard swing beat, and instead built momentum through the frenetic speed of his improvisatory lines, which he forcefully overblew from his saxophone. Jazz historian Ted Gioia describes Ayler as a "virtuoso of the coarse and anomalous," and claims that Ayler aimed to break away from the constraints of playing notes and instead to "enter into a new realm. Composer and guitarist Marc Ribot recorded an album dedicated to Ayler's "Spiritual Unity" in 2005 with former Ayler bassist and free jazz leader Henry Grimes.
