The Ornette Coleman Quartet is one of the most important groups in the history of jazz, a truly groundbreaking group that featured the brilliant Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell. In the early 60s this quarter of young guns recorded some of the earliest examples of "free jazz" and were on the vanguard of a new jazz that would shape everything from the spiritual jazz of Strata East and the downtown skronk of John Zorn. This collection compiles early 60s Quartet recordings that were not released on LP at the time. Fantastic collection of one of the greatest jazz quartets in history.
