TOP 100 REVIEWERon 2 December 2013
This was Ornette Coleman's debut recorded for Lester Koenig's CONTEMPORARY label in Los Angeles on February 10/22 & March 24, 1958.
Ornette was playing his white plastic alto saxophone with trumpeter Don Cherry, the underrated pianist Walter Norris, bassist Don Payne & drummer Billy Higgins.
All nine Ornette compositions are memorable especially 'Jayne' dedicated to his wife, 'The Blessing' & 'When Will The Blues Leave?'.
It's difficult to understand what all the fuss was about when this album first came out as this striking & swinging music has connections with bop and the blues and is full of life and energy.
Although not as great as his ATLANTIC recordings, 'Something Else!!!!' still sounds fresh over 50 years later and deserves a place in any modern jazz collection.
