SACD edition of Ornette Coleman's Something Else!!!!, exclusive to the Craft Recordings webstore.
Something Else!!!! (1958) is jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s debut album and helped introduced the world to him as a seminal improviser and composer. This SACD edition, exclusive to craftrecordings.com, has been newly mastered by legendary engineer Bernie Grundman, who like Coleman, got his start at Contemporary Records.
Featuring Coleman’s working band of Don Cherry, pianist Walter Norris, bassist Don Payne and drummer Billy Higgins, the album Something Else!!!! sounds less radical today than strikingly individual and steeped in the blues. With nine Coleman originals, the session introduced several tunes that became standards, including “The Blessing” and “When Will the Blues Leave?”.
