High-quality vinyl with remastered audio (by John Webber at AIR Studio) is the scaffold for the physical enshrinement. This material has been anthologized before But as soon as you settle your stylus into the groove—of “Lonely Woman,” “Ramblin’,” “Blues Connotation,” or “Cross Breeding”—you hear what a difference the LP makes. Sound stages are more three-dimensional. The horns have more heft in their tones and timbres. Bass notes are bigger, drums and cymbals better defined. And that aural umami we call warmth is palpable in the spaces between. You make the experience that much richer - The Absolue Sound

One of the most important (and controversial) innovators of the jazz avant-garde, Ornette Coleman gained both loyal followers and lifelong detractors when he seemed to burst on the scene in 1959 fully formed.

Originally inspired by Charlie Parker, he started playing alto at 14 and tenor two years later. His early experiences were in R&B bands in Texas, including those of Red Connors and Pee Wee Crayton, but his attempts to play in an original style were consistently met with hostility both by audiences and fellow musicians. Coleman moved to Los Angeles in the early '50s, where he worked as an elevator operator while studying music books.

Coleman, who recorded for Verve in the '90s, has remained true to his highly original vision throughout his career and, although not technically a virtuoso and still considered controversial, is an obvious giant of jazz. He recorded sparingly as the 21st century began, appearing on Joe Henry's Scar in 2000 and on single tracks on Lou Reed's Raven and Eddy Grant's Hearts & Diamonds, both released in 2002.
