"By 1961, when Free Jazz was released, alto saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman was infamous in the jazz world. His searing alto sax and full-ensemble take on melody were assailed by critics. Free Jazz only furthered Coleman's infamy, with its seamless, seemingly atonal high energy and wholesale lack of a melodic or harmonic center. For the session, Coleman assembled two complete quartets and had them play the same music opposite each other, with diving power and a kind of strange grace usually associated with acoustic blues. The music is raw and incisive, with sharp tones and biting solos appearing amidst propulsive rhythms that still seem whispery in their swishing shuffle. This recording helped cast the 1960s--and every decade since--in jazz. It drew a line in the sand, and critics, fans, and musicians are still haggling over the line today."--Andrew Bartlett

Sophisticated ladies by Charlie Haden Quartet West ( Recording )

Founded in the mid-Eighties by bassist Charlie Haden, Quartet West was and still is, undisputedly, one of the most elegant and coherent small-groups in contemporary jazz. Together with Ernie Watts on tenor saxophone, Alan Broadbent on piano and Larance Marable on drums, Haden resuscitated and modernized a typically Californian way of playing the "jazz game", one made of softness, sophistication and sensual clarity. The quartets six recordings "Quartet West" (1987), "In Angel City" (1988), "Haunted Heart" (1992), "Always say Goodbye" (1994), "Now Is the Hour" (1996) and "The Art Of Song" (1999) can all be read as autobiographical, melancholy plunges into the intimate recesses of the bassist's imagination: as many chapters of some dreamlike auto-fiction that multiplies the connexions and relations between Californian jazz of the immediate post-war period, and Hollywood during the same era, which was marked notably by the deadly sophistication of the great noir films. This is a sensual, nostalgic drift through the subconscious of one of the greatest musicians in contemporary jazz. The new release by Quartet West 'Sophisticated Ladies' not only finds the group with a new drummer (Rodney Green), but as well in the company of some of the greatest female vocalists of our time Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, Melody Gardot, Norah Jones, Renee Fleming and Charlie's wife, Ruth Cameron
