Ornette Coleman Quintet: Complete Live At The Hillcrest Club (CD: Gambit)Ornette Coleman Quintet: Complete Live At The Hillcrest Club (CD: Gambit)
The complete performance on a single CD for the first time. These concerts are the only known recorded works of Paul Bley with Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry or Billy Higgins, both separately and as a unit. Even though it may not have been a regular unit or a stylistically defined group, the quintet heard on these historic Hillcrest recordings shows a highly creative level, and transmits a contagious excitement and a continuous search for new musical ideas and new ways to express themselves that makes this music as impressive today as it was when it was first performed nearly fifty years ago.

Ornette Coleman: Tomorrow Is The Question (CD: Contemporary- US Import)
This is Ornette's second Contemporary album, recorded a year after his debut Something Else!!!!, again featuring Don Cherry but substituting the "house" rhythm section of Shelly Manne and Red Mitchell for Billy Higgins and Don Payne.

Albums followed on Atlantic, Blue Note, ESP, and Horizon. Ornette's "accessibility" remains a record company concern–a 1988 Portrait release was touted by the label as his "most accessible." But his music was accessible enough 40 years ago for Contemporary's Les Koenig to have launched Coleman's enduring and distinguished recording career. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Ornette Coleman: The Shape Of Jazz To Come (CD: Atlantic)Ornette Coleman: The Shape Of Jazz To Come (CD: Atlantic)
One of the first recordings Ornette made for Atlantic, featuring his classic quartet lineup of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden & Billy Higgins. Challenging, emotional and (at the time) widely mis-understood music that changed the way jazz was played and listened to, this record includes the glorious 'Lonely Woman', a Coleman classic.

Ornette Coleman: Twins (CD: Atlantic)
Recorded between 1959 and 1961, just before Coleman disbanded his quartet and left Atlantic, these sessions, which remained unreleased until 1971, feature cornettist Don Cherry, Charlie Haden / Scott LaFaro on bass and Ed Blackwell / Billy Higgins on drums, and include gems like ‘First Take’ (the warm-up to ‘Free Jazz’ with clarinettist Eric Dolphy and trumpeter Freddie Hubbard). An indispensable post-script to the most important period of Coleman’s career. (Warner Jazz)

Ornette Coleman. Don Cherry, Jimmy Giuffre & Kenny Dorham: The Lenox Jazz School Concert August 1959 (CD: Free Factory)
For the first time on CD, an amazing 1959 concert featuring Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Jimmy Giuffre and Kenny Dorham - a meeting of some of the best stars of modern & free jazz. Also featured are Gunther Schuller, Ran Blake, Gary Mcfarland, Ian Underwood and Attila Zoller.

The Lenox School of Jazz was a summer program in Lenox, Massachusetts founded by John Lewis and held from 1957 to 1960. It was one of the first instances where the world's greatest jazz musicians were enlisted as faculty and where jazz was taught to promising young musicians.

This release presents the rare and long unavailable 1959 Lenox Annual Benefit Concert - and as a bonus, an extremely rare quartet set by Kenny Dorham (who was one of the mentors at the Lenox School) - recorded live in Norway with local musicians in January 1964. (Discovery Records)
