Details Release Date: Sep 12, 2006; Lead Performance: Ornette Coleman; Genre: Jazz

Sound Grammar, his first disc in a decade catches Ornette Coleman's quartet, featuring two bass players, at a 2005 concert in Germany, playing two classics and six new tunes. Spouting upward-pointed cries, downward-bent moans, and playful squiggly figures, Coleman, at 76, remains a fountain of sublime ideas.
