Ornette Coleman, Chronology, The Shape of Jazz to Come, 1959

Recorded May 22, 1959 in Hollywood, Cal.

The Shape of Jazz to Come found Coleman and his quartet elaborating on the sound 
and themes he had been developing throughout his career.

Ornette Coleman  coined the term "harmolodic", a combination of harmony, movement, and melody, 
to describe his philosophy of improvisation which heavily emphasized melody rather than harmony.

Ornette Coleman – alto saxophone
Don Cherry – cornet
