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 stuffanything with bern nix after dancing in your headamazing free funkfusion with coleman's "harmelodic" theory intactBody Meta is probably the best I've heard, so far
Thank you! I lost "Caravan of Dreams" and am happy to find it again. Superior blog!
Very choice Ornette, all of which I haven't heard in years. Thanks.
I have to periodically come back by your blog to tell you thanks and amazing work! Thanks specifically for all these lovely Ornette records, conveniently together in one place. His genius staggers my imagination. Great blog!
