Editorial Reviews

A year before moving to NY and rocketing to renown as a free-jazz pioneer, Ornette recorded two albums for West Coast label Contemporary Records. Here's the first (featuring Don Cherry): Invisible; Jayne; The Sphinx; Chippie; Alpha , and more including unissued bonus cuts. A fascinating jazz collectible, ca. 1958!

4.0 out of 5 stars You May Want to Get "Somethin' Else" December 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Somethin' Else" might have been a good start for Ornette Coleman's recording career, but it is not the best place to start your Ornette Coleman CD collection. The tunes are good, and 3/4 of his classic Atlantic quartet (Ornette, Don Cherry and Billy Higgins) are present, but the album lacks musical cohesion. This is laregly due to the inclusion of piano in the group. While Paul Bley may have been able to accompany Ornette on some level, Walter Norris does not, and piano in general was not well-suited to Ornette's music. In fact, I'm not sure he ever recorded with a piano player again until nearly forty years later with Geri Allen on the "Sound Museum" sessions. Ornette fans will certainly want to get this, but others should have a dozen other Ornette CDs under their belt before this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Debut as Bandleader! January 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every time I hear this album it just automatically puts a smile on my face.
As much as I'm a fan of Coleman's more Avantgard style, this album is certainly a must for any Ornette Coleman collection. It is fun to hear Coleman with a piano, which is not common on his albums, and Don Cherry (pocket trumpet)certainly rocks on this record as he does on all those early recordings with Ornette. Absolutely one of my favorite records period!
