about

Saxophonist Chris Kelsey and pianist Lewis Porter interpret ten seldom-played compositions by the great Ornette Coleman.

“Shaman-like, sharp-witted, and intentionally shambolic (in) a single package ... Chris Kelsey and Dr. Lewis Porter have created something truly remarkable with "Free." They balance erudition and abandon while satisfying a craving for intelligent music dusted with mirth and mayhem. This album perfectly feeds into expectations while simultaneously defying them. The title hints at a second volume, and that would certainly be welcome. If it comes to pass, I'm sure it'll be a doozy like this one." - Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
