Stunningly repackaged, remastered, and featuring new liner notes by leading jazz writers, the Warner Jazz Masters Series includes best sellers as well as rare, sought-after gems.
On this highly influential 1959 album, Ornette Coleman's unique writing style and solo language forever changed the jazz landscape. On classics such as "Lonely Woman," "Congeniality," and "Focus on Sanity," Coleman used the tunes' moods and melodic contours, rather than their chords, as a basis for his improvisations.
This is truly an essential jazz recording, marking the end of one era, providing the blueprint for the next.
