For the dedicated jazz lover, the Real Gone Jazz re-releases are like manna from heaven -classic albums ca. 1958-early 60s from Quincy Jones, Eric Dolphy, George Russell, Bill Evans (some with his classic trio), Sun Ra, Bud Powell (I haven't bought this one yet), Art Blakey, Cecil Taylor, Ben Webster (I don't need this o ne because I own most of the originals), Horace Silver, Monk, Jimmy Smith (eighteen albums on ten CDs), and now this, six albums by one of the three most creative, innovative and influential jazz musicians of the sixties, Ornette Coleman. (The other two would be Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane.)
Four of the six albums are essential -three with the OC quartet: The Shape of Jazz to Come, Change of the Century, and This Is Our Music, with Coleman on sax, Don Cherry on trumpet, Haden on bass, and either Billy Higgins or Eddie Blackwell on drums, both equally attuned to the indeterminate music of Coleman's vision. The fourth indispensable album is, of course, Ornette's double quartet album, Free Jazz, with both of his drummers of the time, Higgins and Blackwell, bassist Haden augmented by virtuoso performer Scott LaFaro, two additional horns, trumpeter Hubbard and bass clarinetist and musician extraordinaire Eric Dolphy, and Higgins and Blackwell in tandem on drums.
The other two albums, Something Else!!! (1958) and Tomorrow Is the Question!Read more ›
