There was a fascinating article about Donald Ayler in the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

"Troubled and destitute, he was long unheard and out of the spotlight, except for a halting interview in the recent documentary, "My Name Is Albert Ayler," which was screened by Cleveland Cinematheque in November. When a short preview ran in The Plain Dealer, few people noticed it was the same day Donald's obituary ran in Britain's Guardian newspaper. It was the only mainstream news outlet to carry it."
