i listened a lot to Coleman's "Free Jazz" album from 1960, a very good LP that i absolutely hated the first time i heard it. it's definitely music that needs to grow on you but once you get the hang of it, it can be amazing. i also heard his "Shape of Jazz to Come" album.
i recently watched "Naked Lunch" on which he compoised and played the majority of the soundtrack. some very cool music in that flick, and the movie itself is sick as hell - on so many levels haha.
what i wonder though is about his Prime Time ensemble. i've seen it mentioned several times when reading about some of Miles Davis dark free funk releases like "On the Corner", "In Concert" and "Dark Magus". i don't know which Coleman / Prime Time album to start with, so any suggestions - and do they sound anything like the Davis LPs mentioned above?
