Notes

FREE JAZZ was recorded in one uninterrupted "take" of 36 minutes 23 seconds and transfered to record without any overdubs made.
It is exactly as heard in the studio during the performance of the Ornette Coleman Double Quartet.

On stereo Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro and Billy Higgins are heard on the left channel, Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell are heard right.

Stereo version with blue and green vinyl label that features a "white fan logo" on a black background. Packaged in a heavy cardboard gatefold sleeve.

@Inspector.Godot: do you mean all runs of the reissues? Or especially the 1996 version?

This album was groundbreaking in the history of jazz, featuring the longest session of pure and free improvisation. Honestly, I can't say I still love the album or listen to it regularly, but there were times when I deeply enjoyed it's groove, inventiveness and richness. It's also featuring both great bass players Coleman's played with - Charlie Haden and Scott LaFaro - and both drummers - Billy Higgins and Ed Blackwell. CD versions also feature an alternate take. Avoid the vinyl reissue, by the way! It sounds quite thin and empty.
