Crate Diggers: Mats Gustafsson. By Anton Spice in Features February 2, 2017. Self-taught free jazz heavyweight and self-confessed Discaholic Mats Gustafsson has one of the most fabled record collections in Europe. He produced Albert Ayler’s first record and played with Don Cherry, he made free improvised music on solo saxophone as early as 1962. He has a very tragic story, about how he grew up, but this guy inherited money from his aunt and he took all the money and invested it in a really good portable tape machine and started to record other people’s music and his own in his kitchen basically.
