1987 Hamburg Concert [Import]
(Spain - Import, 2PC)
Import-only release containing a previously unreleased live performance by the original Ornette Coleman quartet, in a reunion concert that took place in Hamburg, Germany, in 1987. The performance was taped nearly 30 years after the quartet's first album, the wonderful the Shape of Jazz to Come. Among the many highlights here are revised versions of 'Lonely Woman', from that album, and 'The Sphinx', from Ornette's first album, Something Else!, as well as various tunes from the quartet's reunion studio album, in All Languages, which was recorded during the same year this concert was taped.
