Sun Ra preachiness and atmospherics.

Didn't know what I was in for. Underwhelmed sadly.

"Shape of Jazz To Come" ......this is the one that has "Lonely Woman", is it ? That tune was the absolut favourite of my mother in her very last years, she died only a month short of her 102nd Birthday last year. 

She loved that tune and at least in her mid to late 90´s she still was movin around and loved a little wooden bench near a brook and told me "tell them burgermasters or who it is, to name that bench officially "Ornette Coleman Bench".....


My own experience with Ornette Coleman had started with "Empty Foxhole" and "Crisis" in the early 70s. When I finally found "Jazz to Come'" it sounded more like a straight ahead thing and I didn´t understand why critics or publics called that "Free Jazz" which it definitly isn´t . I was very open for Free Jazz from the very start of my listening to jazz......
