Format: Audio CD
Ornette Coleman has invented an entirely new style of music, harmolodics. Harmolodics "seeks to free musical compositions from a tonal center, allowing harmonic progression independent of traditional European notions of tension and release," according to Wikipedia. Got that?

So harmonically this music sounds weird at first. Then it starts to sound cool. Then it starts to sound REALLY cool. Then you're reviewing it on Amazon for free. The key is having great musicians who really understand the concept, and that Ornette has assembled here: Charlie Haden on bass (possibly the world's greatest living jazz bass player); Ed Blackwell on the drums (in my top 3 or 5 drummers all time, and most people don't even know his name); and the late Dewey Redman, another unsung hero of modern jazz--a really, really strong player with a never-ending string of great ideas in his playing.

So four tight musicians, an exciting musical concept, good recording quality--oh, and everybody plays like their lives depended on it. Which seems to happen when people play with Ornette. Some people just have that talent of pulling it out of people. Miles certainly had it. Duke had it. I think Ornette does, too.

This album is definitely not for the faint of heart. It's not background music. It demands to be listened to. If that's a disclaimer, so be it. Otherwise, turn it up as loud as your neighbors and local zoning laws allow, and get your freak on.
