The shape of jazz to come by Ornette Coleman ( Recording )
50 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 )
41 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 862 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

Consecuentemente el protagonista debe escapar a la Interzona, una versión alucinante de Tánger, un lugar donde las máquinas de escribir son insectos que hablan y donde un escritor amanerado y su esposa son peones en un rompecabezas de espionaje bizarro entre los seres humanos y una raza de ciempiés gigantes que puede llegar a ocurrir solamente en la cabeza del protagonista
