5.0 out of 5 stars Ornette Bites Back!!, 7 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Free Jazz (Audio CD)
When this came out on vinyl I managed to get a gatefold import copy from Dobell's Record shop in London. I was stunned. Fabulous group improv and easily as good as Coltrane's Ascension but not comparable as they approach improvisational jazz in a different way. The best solution, if you like these performers is to have both. Well worth making sure that your copy of "Free Jazz" has the alternate shorter take which is just as good. Highly recommended if you like Ornette. Give it a miss if you don't.

Dobells -- What an education that s/h record basement was; I got my first, and best listen to guitarist Pat Martino on John Handy's 'new view' Lp from there!
Recently got a s/h (great expense 2nd time around) CD of that through Amazon: now all this Ornette stuff ... I think I needed the time interval to really get back to this stuff. All these well priced reissues -- Wonderful!

Well worth listening to both takes of Coltrane's Ascension (included on CD reissues) to gain a deeper appreciation.

Absolutely.
Another giant passes. Must listen to The Shape of Jazz to Come.
