Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz on 180g 45RPM 2LP from ORG Music!

180g 45rpm Double LP Remastered From Original Analog Tapes!
Pressed at Pallas and Mastered by Bernie Grundman!

Modern Improvisational Jazz Begins Here: Watershed 1960 Opus Anchored By 37-Minute-Plus Title Track

Features a Double Quartet: One Band in Each Stereo Channel With Two Simultaneously Playing Rhythm Sections

Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Haden, Freddie Hubbard Among Musicians in Two Distinct Groups

Mind-Blowing Sonics: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, ORG Music Creates an Audiophile Spectacular

Modern improvisational jazz starts here. With one quartet placed in the left stereo channel and another situated in the right, Free Jazz unloads with two simultaneously playing rhythm sections and a 37-minute-plus title cut devised entirely on the spot.

Distinctive from the copycat attempts that followed, this 1960 magnum opus claims melody and harmony, solidifying Ornette Coleman’s reputation as a compositional genius. Of course, the presence of Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro, Billy Higgins in the left channel and Coleman, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell in the right doesn't hurt.

Mastered from the original master tapes, ORG Music's analog edition has turned this classic into an audiophile spectacular. Due to the presentation of the recording in two distinct stereo channels, this album supremely benefits from the label's mastering efforts and decision to expand the music into wider grooves. Prepare for a mind-blowing experience.
