Most widely held works by Ornette Coleman
The shape of jazz to come by Ornette Coleman ( Recording )
56 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"...It's the entire album, which still has suck freshness: it spills all over your idea of what jazz is but makes inherent sense, cohering with the like-mindedness of a suite."--New York Times Essential Library Jazz
Free jazz a collective improvisation by Ornette Coleman Double Quartet ( Recording )
52 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By 1961, when Free Jazz was released, alto saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman was infamous in the jazz world. His searing alto sax and full-ensemble take on melody were assailed by critics. Free Jazz only furthered Coleman's infamy, with its seamless, seemingly atonal high energy and wholesale lack of a melodic or harmonic center. For the session, Coleman assembled two complete quartets and had them play the same music opposite each other, with diving power and a kind of strange grace usually associated with acoustic blues. The music is raw and incisive, with sharp tones and biting solos appearing amidst propulsive rhythms that still seem whispery in their swishing shuffle. This recording helped cast the 1960s--and every decade since--in jazz. It drew a line in the sand, and critics, fans, and musicians are still haggling over the line today."--Andrew Bartlett
Naked lunch by David Cronenberg ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and German and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part-time pest-control man and full-time drug addict Bill Lee (Weller) seeks escape from his troubled existence in 1953 New York and flees to Interzone (a hallucinatory version of Tangiers) where reality and fantasy have merged. It's a strange, surreal landscape inhabited by mugwumps, half-alien, half-insect creatures, man-sized centipedes, carnivorous typewriters and bizarre humans. Compelled to make sense of this alien territory, he writes a book called "Naked lunch."
