In defiance of the musical conventions of the time, Ornette Coleman’s Atlantic debut set the standard for an incoming wave of avant garde and free jazz. Eschewing a pianist and even concrete harmonic structure, The Shape of Jazz to Come, while not inaccessible by any means, feels like it could go anywhere at any moment. Coleman and frequent partner, trumpeter Don Cherry careen melodically to and fro, expanding the scope of what was thought to be possible in jazz.
