Doxy present a reissue of Ornette Coleman's album Change Of The Century, originally released in 1960. The second album by Ornette Coleman's legendary quartet featuring Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins, Change Of The Century is every bit the equal of the monumental The Shape of Jazz to Come (OUT 5007LP, 1959), showcasing a group that was growing ever more confident in its revolutionary approach and the chemistry in the band members' interplay. When Coleman concentrates on melody, his main themes are catchier, and when the pieces emphasize group interaction, the improvisation is freer. Two of Coleman's most memorable classic compositions are here in their original forms - "Ramblin'" has all the swing and swagger of the blues, and the oddly disjointed "Una Muy Bonita", its theme stopping and starting in totally unexpected places; both secure their themes to stable, pedal-point bass figures. Edition of 500 (numbered).
