Album Review

This CD is often quite exciting, if a bit messy. Ornette Coleman (on alto, trumpet and violin) is heard with his "double quartet" Prime Time, which at the time was comprised of guitarists Bern Nix and Charlie Ellerbee, electric bassists Al MacDowell and Chris Walker, and drummers Denardo Coleman (who also plays some keyboards) and Calvin Weston. As if the ensembles are not dense and overcrowded enough, Jerry Garcia sits in on third guitar on three of the 11 Coleman originals. The music is frequently exciting, but will take several listens to absorb. Worth investigating.

Customer Reviews

that review lacks heart, iTunes

i listened to this album frequently for a couple of years while abroad. Upon return and the turn of technology, it fell by the wayside. This music is vast and profound. While it lacks the bebop standard fire feel that many of us have become accustomed to, it gives us new elements, air and water while grounding into the earthy loose funk, if you will. This is the music of vision, upliftment and forward motion. And, though, not a fan of the “jam band” world, I can appreciate the musicianship, and a little Dead never hurt anybody. I definitely recommend this album to anyone with an inclination toward jazz, funk and world music, as it fills a niche that few things come close to; save some mellower John Zorn (think masada) and Sun Ra (fate in a pleasant mood when sun comes out.) jus sayin
