" ... It's the entire album, which still has such freshness: it spills all over your idea of what jazz is but makes inherent sense, cohering with the like-mindedness of a suite"--
Free jazz a collective improvisation by Ornette Coleman Double Quartet( Recording )

65 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Music critic Tim Page interviews Ornette Coleman, an American saxophonist, violinist, trumpeter and composer. They discuss Coleman's career as a jazz musician and a composer. Coleman talks about his earlier career playing in church, followed by pop music and bebop, and how in 1940s and 1950s he started to compose jazz music. He also explains his conception of bebop, and his later style called "free jazz." He talks about the group Primetime Band and his experience with the combination of various styles. He says he was always more interested in the world of music than the world of business. He gives advice to young composers not to focus on success but on result the piece they produce when they want to be heard, and not to copy styles of other composers but to follow their own.
