This Is Our Music

This Is Our Music

This release presents the seminal Ornette Coleman album This Is Our Music (Atlantic SD1353) in its entirety, featuring the wonderful piano-less quartet with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell. The group consisted of modern players working with the same concept: a freer way of playing jazz, which transcended the strict confines of melody, harmony and rhythm. They would create a whole new idiom by constructing music via the interplay of simultaneous collective improvisation. Coleman had made his debut on records in February/March 1958 with the LP Something Else!!!!. The quartet of Coleman/Cherry/Haden and Billy Higgins on drums was heard on The Shape of Jazz to Come and Change of the Century.
