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

With two landmark albums already under its belt, the Ornette Coleman Quartet spent nearly a year out of the studio before reconvening for This Is Our Music. The album features Coleman on alto, Don Cherry on trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. "All in all, This Is Our Music keeps one of the hottest creative streaks in jazz history going strong” (AllMusic).

Coleman disapproved of giving up his own voice and viewed standards as concessions to popular taste; as the unapologetic title of the album makes clear, he wanted to be taken (or left) on his own terms. And that word 'our' also makes clear just how important the concept of group improvisation was to Coleman's goals. It's all showcased to best effect here on the hard-swinging 'Blues Connotation' and the haunting 'Beauty Is a Rare Thing,' though pretty much every composition has something to recommend it.

The inventor of what has been called “free jazz,” Ornette Coleman belongs to that rare breed of artists/thinkers whose influence extends far beyond the realm of their chosen medium. Always putting his remarkable virtuosity at the service of melody and emotion, he has had a powerful impact on how musicians play, improvise, and compose, on how music lovers listen, on the color and sound of music the world over.

This essential edition of Coleman’s fifth album was mastered from original analog tapes at 45RPM by Bernie Grundman, pressed on two 180gram LPs, and is housed in an old school style Stoughton case-wrapped gatefold jacket.
