OC, alto sx; Don Cherry, tpt; Freddie Hubbard, tpt (on Free Jazz); Eric Dolphy, b clari (on Free Jazz); Walter Norris, p (on Something Else!!!; Charlie Haden, Percy Heath or Red Mitchell (on Tomorrow Is the Question!), Don Payne (on Something Else!!!), b; Scott LaFaro, b (on Free Jazz); Billy Higgins, Eddie Blackwell, Shelley Manne, dr (on Tomorrow Is the Question!)

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!

This 4 CD set contains the entirety of 6 early album releases by the free jazz titan Ornette Coleman. The sound has been remastered, I believe, because it is so clear and full and transparent. And you can't beat the price. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to check out Ornette's music.

I rated this recording the maximum number of stars because it accomplishes what the best music does -- it transcends mere organized sound. It transports consciousness into another space and time; conducted there by its creator, in this case, Ornette Coleman. I am ill-equipped to discuss the technical proficiency of these tunes. What I can share with you is that if you are interested in sound as the bewitching ephemera of ecstasy -- here is your soundtrack! Bon voyage!

All of the recordings are pretty good, not perfect but then again considering the price one shouldn't expect the recording to be the same quality as a vinyl. Only problem is if you decide to rip the mp3s you'll find that the tracks are not labeled properly, so be prepared to spend some time fixing the labels.

This six classic album collection of Ornette Coleman's Quartet was excellently remastered and is a stellar example of avante-garde jazz music of the late 1950's and early 1960's. It is still as musically relevant and important as when these albums were recorded 50 years ago (tempis fugit!). I would highly recommend any jazz aficionado add this to his collection. Wonderful price, wonderful jazz!

Even with no liner notes, who cares? This music changed the conception of Jazz. Dig it, be a fool not to, and for this low price
why not? Claim you like Jazz? Get in on the ground floor. As vital as Bird, Trane, Miles, Hendrix or anyone they were ever associated with.
