Modern Improvisational Jazz Begins Here: Watershed 1960 Opus Anchored By
37-Minute-Plus Title Track
Features a Double Quartet: One Band in Each Stereo Channel With Two
Simultaneously Playing Rhythm Sections
Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Haden, Freddie Hubbard Among
Musicians in Two Distinct Groups
Mind-Blowing Sonics: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, ORG Music Creates
an Audiophile Spectacular
Modern improvisational jazz starts here. With one quartet placed in the left
stereo channel and another situated in the right, Free Jazz unloads with two
simultaneously playing rhythm sections and a 37-minute-plus title cut devised
entirely on the spot.
Distinctive from the copycat attempts that followed, this 1960 magnum opus
claims melody and harmony, solidifying Ornette Coleman’s reputation as a
compositional genius. Of course, the presence of Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Billy
Higgins in the left channel and Coleman, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden, and Ed
Blackwell in the right doesn't hurt.
Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's analog edition has turned
this classic into an audiophile spectacular. Due to the presentation of the
recording in two distinct stereo channels, this album supremely benefits from
the label's mastering efforts and decision to expand the music into wider
grooves. Prepare for a mind-blowing experience.
