Ornette Coleman. In All Languages

I used to to own this on vinyl, a two record set. Now I have it on itunes. Part I is Ornette with a reunion of his original quartet, with Cherry, Haden, Higgins. Part II is a set of some of the same compositions with his funk group, electric guitars and basses and drums. Check out "Latin Genetics."

I tend to listen to the reunion quartet more than to the funk-based part, but they form a nice contrast.

I used to play "Music News," one of the electric tunes, as the theme song on my jazz show at KZSU!
