Ornette Coleman The Shape of Jazz to Come on 180g 45RPM 2LP from ORG
Ranked #246 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
Revolutionary Album Marks Commencement of New Jazz Language
Quartet Includes Don Cherry and Charlie Haden
Remarkable Sonics: Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Bernie Grundman, This is THE Audiophile Edition of This World-Beater
1959’s landscape-shifting The Shape of Jazz to Come is true to its title. Switching from tenor to alto sax, Ornette Coleman creates free jazz, a language where chords structures are absent and harmony gives way to improvisational whims. Ranked by Rolling Stone in the top 250 of its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, the Atlantic set finds Coleman collaborating with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins in making a masterful work free of any identifiable chord structures. Nonetheless, melodies remain, as do engrossing repetitions of main themes.
ORG Music brings the breakthrough arrangements and magnificent colors to life in a way no one’s experienced since the LP was recorded. Mastered from the original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman, this life-changing music has never sounded so alive and dynamic. This is a must.
