The Avant Garde

The Avant Garde

The Avant-Garde was recorded in 1960, but it shockingly, wasn't in the record stores until six years later - after the assassination of JFK and the British Rock Invasion. Maybe this is why The Avant-Garde never quite hit its stride, even though it was - and still is - way ahead of its time.

Artist: John Coltrane and Don Cherry

Genre: Jazz

Label: Music On Vinyl

Release date:

The avant garde movement in jazz is arguably the pinnacle of the art form, and this record belongs at or near the summit. It features several of Ornette Coleman's sidemen: trumpeter Don Cherry, Ed Blackwell on the skins, and bass players Charlie Haden and Percy Heath. So, although OC doesn't perform, he casts a long shadow over it.
