Great choices! Not his best known albums, but some of my favorite Ornette. I beleive Pharoah Sanders is present on "Chappaqua" as part of the uncredited brass/wind ensemble, and "Body Meta" is just downright funky. The "Caravan of Dreams" is not so easy to find these days, so many thanks for giving us all another chance to hear this stuff!

people make much of coleman's sixties output—and they should—but anything he did with prime time is my favorite stuff
anything with bern nix after dancing in your head
amazing free funk
fusion with coleman's "harmelodic" theory intact
Body Meta is probably the best I've heard, so far
