Something Else!

We've had an abundance of the sweet pop stuff in the past few days, so to cleanse the palette for the week ahead, I've dug out a little free jazz.

Credited to James Blood Ulmer, this is actually more of a collaborative effort with the mighty Ornette
Coleman on alto sax, Jamaaladeen Tacuma on bass and Ornette's son Denardo on drums.

Ornette Coleman's first three albums, issued at the end of the 1950s are essential components of any jazz
collection. This, however, comes from 1978 and finds him still pushing the music forward. If you like this,
check out his crackling 1976 set 'Dancing in Your Head.'

This is bloody great. I'm a big Ornette Coleman fan and concur with what you say about his early stuff. What a band he had back then.
