Coleman, Ornette - Tivoli Koncertsalen Copenhagen 1965 CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-HH 3099 CD
I love Ornette and own a ton of Ornette, but his trio with David Izenzon and Charles Moffett is one of my very favorite of his bands. They emerged in 1962, made a live album for ESP, disappeared for 2 years while Ornette tried to get bookings that represented monetarily what he felt his music was worth (good luck with that, OC!), and then had their biggest spate of activity in 1965 & 1966, with European tours and with a few live recordings coming out on Freedom and Blue Note. This is the best sounding show (a radio broadcast) from that trio version of the band that's never been released before, and I'm thrilled it's finally out and sorry that the bootleggers got to do it. But still essential (ESSENTIAL) for Ornette fans.

"Ornette Coleman Trio, live from Tivoli Koncertsalen, Copenhagen, Denmark on November 30th, 1965. Ornette Coleman formed a new trio with bassist David Izenzon and drummer Charles Moffett in October 1961. As the decade progressed, they expanded their musical palette to include trumpet and violin -- not instruments Coleman was experienced on -- and divided audiences and critics with their fiercely uncompromising music. Originally broadcast on Danmarks Radio, this remarkable set predates the recording of his classic At The "Golden Circle" Stockholm (1965) album by only a few days. The entire broadcast is presented here, digitally remastered, with background notes and images."
