Ornette Coleman Genesis Of Genius: The Contemporary Albums Limited Deluxe 2LP Box Set

Overview:

Featuring two seminal releases, 1958's 'Something Else!!!! The Music of Ornette Coleman' and 1959's 'Tomorrow Is the Question! The New Music of Ornette Coleman'. These albums transformed an unknown jazz visionary from the hinterlands into the talk of the New York scene. Featuring Coleman's working band with Don Cherry on trumpet, pianist Walter Norris, bassist Don Payne and drummer Billy Higgins, the album 'Something Else!!!!' sounds less radical today than strikingly individual and steeped in the blues. With nine Coleman originals, the session introduced several tunes that became standards, including 'The Blessing' and 'When Will the Blues Leave?'.
