Ornette Coleman – All My Life (1971)

All My Life is from Ornette Colemans album Science Fiction, recorded in 1971 and released in 1972 on Columbia Records.

Science Fiction was Ornette Colemans creative rebirth, a stunningly inventive and appropriately alien-sounding blast of manic energy. Coleman pulls out all the stops, working with a variety of different lineups and cramming the record full of fresh ideas and memorable themes. Bassist Charlie Haden and drummers Billy Higgins and/or Ed Blackwell are absolutely indispensable to the overall effect, playing with a frightening, whirlwind intensity throughout. The catchiest numbers — including two songs with Indian vocalist Asha Puthli, which sound like pop hits from an alternate universe — have spacy, long-toned melodies that are knocked out of orbit by the rhythm section’s churning chaos, which often creates a totally different pulse.
