Complete Science Fiction Sessions
Props to Abe for posting Don Cherry's classic "Brown Rice". Now I give you another classic from one of the people that turned jazz on its head and on whose seminal quartet Cherry played, Ornette Coleman. These are the complete Science Fiction sessions from 1972. Cherry plays here, in different configurations, along with Charlie Haden, Billy Higgins (the other two parts of the original quartet), Dewey Redman and Ed Blackwell among others. A essential introduction to harmolodics and Ornette at his most ambitious.
And a bonus: Ornette live at Stockholm, in a trio with David Izenzon and Charles Moffett.
