This album belongs to a time when jazz record executives slapped broad boasts and proclamations onto their products. These usually celebrated the prowess of the artist (Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus) or the potency of the sounds (the Count Basie Orchestra's Atomic Basie). The Shape of Jazz To Come takes that hype up a notch, promoting alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman as no less than the future of the art.

As prophecy goes, the title is spot on. This record introduced Coleman's daring approach to harmony (which he called "harmelodics"), and showed how it stretched common wisdom about consonance and dissonance, structure and openness, hard swing and tempoless contemplation. Coleman and his three agile musicians—trumpeter Don Cherry, bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Billy Higgins; note the absence of a harmony instrument like piano or guitar—engage in a series of squabbling conversations loosely shaped (and occasionally punctuated) by recurring melodic fragments. The ad-libbed motifs dart around corners rapidly; sometimes they bloom and then disappear immediately, sometimes they hang around and mutate as they're volleyed between instrumentalists.

The most famous of these is "Lonely Woman," a sullen Coleman original that's easily his most ubiquitous tune. Following a deliberative bass opening from Haden, Coleman renders it as a study in hanging questions and unresolved mysteries. Other tunes, including "Focus On Sanity" (Coleman's choice for the album title), summon the frenetic energy and taunting fury that soon came to be associated with free jazz. Indeed, it contains maps to the terrain of the future: Historians generally mark this work, which was enshrined in the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry in 2012, as the foundation of the entire jazz avant garde movement. And though the music quickly sprouted more strident modes of expression, this album's forward-hurtling spirit still delivers on the claim of the title. © Tom Moon/Qobuz

Los Grandes Angulares...
El cuarteto americano de Keith Jarrett

Al comienzo de su extensa carrera, Keith Jarrett pasó siete años experimentando como no lo había hecho antes al frente de su cuarteto americano. Con Charlie Haden, Paul Motian y Dewey Redman, el pianista dirigió, entre 1971 y 1976, una especie de laboratorio de locos, en el que se amalgamaba jazz, free pur, world y vanguardia. Un magnífico período para redescubrir.

Betty Davis, la pantera del funk

Se adelantó a divas negras como Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse o Janelle Monáe. Desaparecida de los rádares hace años, Betty Davis fue precursora de las soul sisters más sensuales. La diosa de ébano funk por excelencia. Y que, por otra parte, descubriría las bondades de los instrumentos eléctricos a un tal Miles Davis, con quien estuvo casada un tiempo. Hablamos de ti, Betty.

Chris Connor, la voz olvidada

¿Y si la más grande vocalista de cool jazz fuera ella? Casi diez años después de su fallecimiento Chris Connor sigue siendo considerada una de las voces más sensuales de su generación. Y es que la lista no se cierra con Anita O’Day y June Christy…
