Although rather difficult to track down now, The Unprecedented Music of Ornette Coleman was actually a generously distributed bootleg in the 1980s, seeing at least three separate pressings in that decade alone. The disc documents a 1968 performance of the Coleman Quartet in Milan, Italy, and features the interesting lineup of Coleman on alto sax, trumpet, and shanai, Ed Blackwell on drums, and the bass duo of David Izenzon and Charlie Haden. As can be expected, the quartet plays with great care and collective understanding throughout.
Although rather difficult to track down now, The Unprecedented Music of Ornette Coleman was actually a generously distributed bootleg in the 1980s, seeing at least three separate pressings in that decade alone. Coleman enthusiasts will definitely be interested in the album's closer, the shanai workout "Buddah Blues," during which he displays a tenacity seldom heard even in his discography. The post-Bird, bluesy R&B shouts listeners commonly associate with him are abandoned almost entirely here in favor of a blistering splatter of upper-register runs and Eastern modes, a style resembling Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) as much as anyone else.

Years later, Haden joined forces with pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba, to record the album ‘Tokyo Adagio. 29.

This Is Our Music (Ornette Coleman album). This Is Our Music is the fifth album by saxophonist Ornette Coleman, recorded in 1960 and released on Atlantic Records in 1961, his third for the label.
