Ornette Coleman Trio, live at the Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 14th, 1966. Ornette Coleman formed a new trio with bassist David Izenzon and drummer Charles Moffett in October 1961. As the decade progressed, they expanded their musical palette to include trumpet and violin -- not instruments Coleman was experienced on -- and divided audiences and critics with their fiercely uncompromising music. Originally broadcast on FM radio during a short British tour, this remarkable set finds them on typically confrontational form. Digitally remasters, the broadcast is presented here with background notes and images.
