Free Jazz

Ornette Coleman’s Shape of Jazz to Come is an avant-garde masterpiece of jazz. Two horns blow side-by-side creating call-and-response effects while complemented by the virtuous assistant of drums and bass. The sounds that come out of the talented quartet (Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgings) are pure, unique, and filled with human voices: “Lonely Lady” is exotic; “Eventually” is eclectic; “Peace” is elusive; “Focus on Sanity” is elaborate; “Congeniality” is exquisite; and “Chronology” is exhilarating.
