Outstanding album (and a little piece of history) 2 April 2009
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I like jazz, although I'm not a super-fan, but when I saw this album was re-issued in a remastered edition, I just had to pick it up. Ornette Coleman recorded this live album at the famed New York Town Hall on December 21, 1962 (yes, now more than 46 years ago, wow), which in and of itself makes this a little bit of jazz history.

"Town Hall 1962" (4 tracks; 47 min.) starts off with a blasting and delightful "Doughnut" in which the trio immediately stretches out in a 9+ min. free jazz piece. The interplay between David Izenson on bass and Charlie Moffett on drums is fascinating. Next follows the short and slowly brooding "Sadness". After that we get a complete deviation, namely "Dedication to Poets and Writers", a 9 min. string quartet piece that can only be described as a modern classical chamber music piece, quite intruiging (although the applause from the audience at the end is tentative, as I can only imagine they did not expect anything like this from Coleman, who wrote this but did not play on it). The last track (the original Side B) is the 23+ min. "The Ark", which picks up where "Doughnut" left off: a free jazz improvisation that explores the boundaries of that style, just beautiful. Coleman's alto sax solos are nithing short of mesmorizing.

In all, this is an unbelievable album from start to finish. The remastered sound is outstanding, I mean, it's really unbelievable that this was recorded in 1962. Highly recommended!

a landmark.. 3 Mar 2013

Ornette Coleman needs no presentation. The master is here in a historical recording. Town Hall 1962 by ESP is worth checking out if one is not afraid to listen to free jazz. Along with what he did for Atlantic, this is a personal favorite of mine.

This is Ornette Coleman at his best. This live concert from the famous Town Hall venue in NYC in 1962 is just mindblowingly awesome. There are 4 songs on it: the first is 9 minutes, #2 is about 4 minutes, the 3rd which is an avant-garde string quartet composition ("Dedication to Writers & Poets") which blows one's mind - the music is brilliant and absolute genius. The last song, "The Ark" is the album's longest tune - coming in at around 24 minutes. This is a must have for any Ornette Coleman fan. Another one that a big Coleman aficionado must have is the double CD, THE COMPLETE SCIENCE FICTION SESSIONS - a blissful, total avant-garde, post-post bop freak out that is wonderfully spellbinding. Of course , there are lots of other great titles of his that deserve having, but the latter mentions are ones that fans and newcomers alike must have in their collection. ENJOY!!!
