5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly Beautiful, 1 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Sound Grammar (Audio CD)
No exageration. This has to be one of the greatest jazz records ever made. I like most of Ornette's output throughout 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. This is like a summary. Even though its essentially acoustic it has jazz skits, blues cries, country themes, classic resonances and basically some of the most moving pieces of music I have heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd, 30 Mar. 2006
This review is from: New Grass (Audio CD)
This album often gets one star in jazz reviews. It see Ayler moving the complexity of free jazz to an r&b squarker. He sings, he wails, he leads a soul band. Many reviews comment that this album equally annoys jazz, soul and rock fans equally which in my mind has got to be a good thing. There is little doubt that it is incredibly dated, however any fans of punk jazz should lisen in. One of my favourite albums.
