Ornette Coleman – Just for You (1959)

Recorded 22nd of May, 1959. Second track on the album The Art of the Improvisers by Ornette Coleman.

Like many of Ornette Coleman’s Atlantic sides, The Art of the Improvisers was recorded in numerous sessions from 1959-1961 and assembled for the purpose of creating a cohesive recorded statement. As an album, The Art of the Improvisers is usually undervalued when placed next to This Is Our Music or The Shape of Jazz to Come. This is a mistake in that some of Coleman’s most deeply lyrical harmonic structures reside here in tracks such as “Just for You,” with literally stunning intervallic interplay between him and Cherry from the middle to the end. The track also messes with standard blues form and comes up in a modal way without seemingly intending to.  [source]

Line up: Ornette Coleman – alto saxophone / Don Cherry – cornet / Charlie Haden – bass / Billy Higgins – drums
