The Shape of Jazz to Come is one of the cornerstones of 'free jazz' and remains an icon of modern jazz
One of the visionaries of modern jazz, Ornette Coleman greatly helped the freedom of expression in jazz. His approach, while controversial at the turn of the 1960s, turns out just as impressive and refreshing today.
As its title suggests, this album introduced a whole generation of musicians to the possibilities of improvisation. The Shape of Jazz to Come is one of the cornerstones of 'free jazz' and remains an icon of modern jazz.
Note the presence of Don Cherry (cornet), Charlie Haden (double bass) and Billy Higgins (drums).
