This is an unusual album in the catalogue of Ornette Coleman, and one that passes by most critics. It is however a unique insight into the 'free jazz' pioneer's way of working in the early 70s. Recorded at his large loft space in downtown New York which inspired a whole scene of experimental musicians who were locked out of playing established venues. The music is a romp showing Ornette playing trumpet as well as saxophone. His quartet which featured second saxophonist Dewey Redman alongside long term cohorts Ed Blackwell and Charlie Haden prove to be the perfect foil for this legendary set. This is the first vinyl reissue in nearly 20 years and utilises a fresh 24/96 transfer from the original production master.
