LP art series:
artist: Ornette Coleman
work: Science Fiction
Due to Coleman`s recent cancellation from a widely expected concert in Tokyo, there may be fear for his health so let`s hope for the best.
Coleman is already a fiery figure for creating a huge body of work in the jazz avant garde and this one LP was a huge step beyond by creating songs that were not the usual dose of the jazz idiom, instead taking a mix of songs and fast improv with the theme of `science fiction,` Coleman created a classic. This is one of the most outstanding works in his history, more so cause it was never repeated. The cover speaks volumes of the state of mind during this time.
