Originally released in 1959, The Shape of Jazz to Come was Ornette Coleman's debut album with Atlantic Records. This album, containing no recognizable chord structure, lead the way for free-style, improvisational jazz recordings. In 2003, the album was ranked number 246 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

"1959 was a landmark for jazz recordings. Miles Davis created his Kind of Blue and John Coltrane made his Giant Steps. But the most influential jazz album made in 1959 came from Ornette Coleman... It was called The Shape of Jazz To Come." - Martin Johnson, The Wall Street Journal

"Coleman's sound was so out-there, one audience threw his tenor sax over a cliff. He switched to alto and pioneered free jazz: no chords, no harmony, any player can take the lead. Here, his music can be just as lyrical as it is demanding, particularly on the haunting "Lonely Woman." -
