Ornette Coleman – Him and Her (1979)

Him and Her is track number three on the album Of Human Feelings by Ornette Coleman, released 1979 on Antilles.
Side one: 1) Sleep Talk, 2) Jump Street, 3) Him and Her, 4) Air Ship
Side two: 1) What Is The Name Of That Song ?, 2) Job Mob, 3) Love Words, 4) Times Square

When one thinks of Ornette Coleman´s innovative Prime Time Band, it is of crowded ensembles played by the altoist/leader, two guitars, two electric bassists, and two drummers. Actually, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, who plays enough for two musicians, is the only bassist on this date, but guitarists Charlie Ellerbee and Bern Nix, along with drummers Denardo Coleman and Calvin Weston, keep the ensembles quite exciting. None of the eight Coleman originals (which includes a tune titled “What Is the Name of That Song?”) would catch on, but in this context they serve as a fine platform for Coleman´s distinctive horn and often witty and free (but oddly melodic) style.
