This is highly recommended for Ornette Coleman fans. You really get the sense from this CD that Ornette is the consumate melodic player with a positive outlook on life.
This album took several listens to before I could wrap my brain around it. I won't repeat what previous reviewers have written. It's certainly very dense, challenging music which sometimes fools you into thinking it's just funky world beat, but then turns around and messes with your head. The lines the various instruments play are melodic and consonant, but the way they interact is somewhat disorienting at times, before falling back together. He manages to incorporate a huge variety of musical styles and influences and stir up something that could not possibly be anything other than Ornette! Overall this is fascinating music.
It's become one of my favorite Ornette Coleman albums (and yes, of course I love the 60's stuff!). Give this one several listens.
If you've never heard any harmelodic or free Jazz before, this *might* not be the one to start with. I'd suggest Science Fiction first, and moving on from there at your own discretion.
