Ornette Coleman - Genesis of Genius: The Contemporary Albums (2-LP Box Set)

Containing newly remastered audio, Genesis of Genius: The Contemporary Albums combines legendary Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s albums for Lester Koenig’s Contemporary Records.

This deluxe box set features Coleman’s first albums as a bandleader, Something Else!!!! and Tomorrow is the Question!. Both albums were originally recorded by legendary engineer Roy DuNann and have been newly mastered by Bernie Grundman, whom DuNann was a mentor for. Also included is a 32-page booklet with photos and extensive new liner notes by GRAMMY® Award-winning music historian Ashley Kahn.

Ornette Coleman - Something Else!!!! The Music of Ornette Coleman (SACD)

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?”.

Ornette Coleman - Tomorrow is the Question! (SACD)

Ornette Coleman’s second album Tomorrow is the Question! (1959) has been newly mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original tapes for this new SACD format. Featuring Don CherryShelly Manne, and either Percy Heath or Red Mitchell on bass, the emphatic, pianoless Tomorrow Is the Question! made it clear that Coleman’s concepts were both insistently innovative and tethered to bedrock African American idioms. Consisting entirely of Coleman originals, the album introduced several tunes that became an essential part of the jazz canon, including “Tears Inside,” “Rejoicing” and “Turnaround.”
