1959's landscape-shifting The Shape of Jazz to Come is true to its title. Switching from tenor to alto sax, Coleman creates free jazz, a language where chords structures are absent and harmony gives way to improvisational whims. Ranked by Rolling Stone in the top 250 Greatest Albums of All Time, the Atlantic set finds Coleman collaborating with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins in making a masterful work free of any identifiable chord structures. Nonetheless, melodies remain, as do engrossing repetitions of main themes.
