Ornette Coleman - Ken Burns Jazz Collection: The Definitive Ornette Coleman (2001) Retail CD
One in a series of single-artist compilations that form audio companions to Ken Burns' documentary Jazz, The Definitive Ornette Coleman showcases the work of one of the great innovators in modern jazz. It's also undoubtedly some of the most adventurous music included in the Ken Burns project. Texan altoist Ornette Coleman and his talented quartet turned the jazz world upside down in 1959, creating a radical new way to hear and play music. Challenging bop's infatuation with complex harmonies and chord changes, Coleman used melodic sequences to move songs along rather than adhering to a recurringmore… set of changes. This disc features the heart of Coleman's seminal early work, which he recorded for Atlantic: the landmark recording of "First Take" from Free Jazz, which features a double quartet that includes Eric Dolphy, the catchy "Ramblin'" and the yearning beauty of "Lonely Woman". There is also a piece from his Skies of America symphony and a track from his funk-fuelled electric band of the 1970s. --Tad Hendrickson
