  • Without Ornette Coleman's music, jazz would have had a different story. From the moment he released his revolutionary albums The Shape of Jazz to Come and Free Jazz, in 1959 and 1960, he opened up a new world of possibilities. This saxophonist's extraordinary melodic and rhythmic imagination called for a freedom that needed to explore other paths, and the truth is that his musicality assumes all the blackness that jazz carries in its roots. Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos meets the music of this great jazz master and presents a set of new arrangements for songs that open doors to the intense musical expression of the soloists. The orchestra invited two exceptional guest saxophonists.
