Ornette Coleman – Dancing in your Head VG+/VG+

$44.00 Inc. GST

“Dancing in Your Head,” released in 1977, marks a significant chapter in the discography of legendary jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman. This album stands out as a groundbreaking work that pushed the boundaries of jazz into uncharted territories, blending various musical elements in a way that was both innovative and controversial at the time.

The album features Coleman’s electrifying alto saxophone playing, which is characteristically free and emotionally expressive, delving into the avant-garde and free jazz for which he was renowned. However, “Dancing in Your Head” goes a step further by incorporating elements of funk, rock, and world music, particularly from North Africa, creating a unique and eclectic sound.

The most notable aspect of this album is the introduction of Coleman’s concept of “Harmolodics,” a musical philosophy that emphasizes the harmony of rhythm, melody, and timbre, allowing each musician in the ensemble to play freely without the conventional constraints of harmonic progression. This concept not only redefined Coleman’s approach to composition and improvisation but also had a lasting impact on the future of jazz and experimental music.
