The fifth album from the brilliant free/jazz saxophonist, Ornette Coleman, was released in 1961, a mere 3 years after his first title as a leader. Coleman burst on the scene with his fiery playing and strong compositional statements. This Is Our Music is a brilliant statement of purpose, a youthful declaration of power and innovation, and one of the cornerstones of early American free/jazz. Featuring perhaps his most well regarded quartet, with Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Essential free music from a legend.
