TOP 500 REVIEWERon 24 February 2012
This Ornette Coleman album was originally issued in Japan in 1975 and, although a collection of oddments from the great altoist's ATLANTIC recordings in 1959 & 1960, the music is of a very high quality. One of the quartet tracks was recorded in Hollywood on October 8, 1959 and features drummer Billy Higgins who's replaced by Ed Blackwell on two sessions recorded in New York City during July, 1960.
Ornette's quartet of Don Cherry(trumpet), Charlie Haden(bass) & Ed Blackwell(drums) were playing six nights a week at the Five Spot at this time so the empathy was high and everyone's in superb form.
The seven track titles are derived from Ornette's philosophy: "Music always/brings goodness/to us/all/unless one has/some other/motive for its use".
All in all, this little-known album is full of joyous, passionate music and deserves to be in every Ornette Coleman collection alongside his other ATLANTIC classics.
