Tomorrow Is the Question!

Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on Ornette's Atlantic albums – but even so, it's still incredibly fresh, and well worth seeking out – especially as an example of the sharper edges that were bursting forth from the once-cool west coast scene! Coleman's on alto sax and Don Cherry is on trumpet – but they're not joined by their more familiar associates, and are instead working with a more conventional rhythm team that includes either Percy Heath or Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – all clearly trying to make a bit of sense of Ornette's approach here, but in a way that also creates a great sense of tension on the record! Tracks are shortish, with great solos by Ornette and Cherry – and titles include "Tomorrow Is The Question", "Endless", "Rejoicing", "Lorraine", "Turnaround", "Tears Inside", and "Giggin".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Atlantic, Early 60s. Used
Great lost work from Ornette Coleman – material recorded in New York and LA during the years 1959 through 1961 – never issued at the time, but pulled together in this wonderful package at the start of the 70s! Although not recorded as an official album, the record stands easily with ... CD

Flying Dutchman/RCA (France), 1970. Used
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Ornette Coleman – and a set that's very different than some of his other work for different labels – particularly his better-known material for Blue Note and Atlantic! The album's got a righteous feel that's right up there in the ... CD

Ornette Coleman

Empty Foxhole
Blue Note, 1966. Used
One of our favorite Ornette Coleman albums of the post-Atlantic 60s years – a set that still hangs onto some of the bold rhythmic conception of his previous records, but also points the way towards his freer jazz modes to come! The group's a trio – with really tremendous work from ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used
Important mid 60s work from Ornette – and one of the few recordings of this format to see larger release at the time! The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 6 CD + Book
We'll be honest with you – we love this stuff! Sure, Ornette made some great recordings for a number of other labels – but as a whole, his Atlantic stuff is some of the greatest modern jazz ever recorded, and no other period of an artist is more worth collecting and having in a ... CD

Jackie McLean

Long Drink Of The Blues
New Jazz/OJC, 1957. Used
Long-blowing late 50s work from Jackie McLean – one of his standout sets as a leader from the pre-Blue Note years! The album features McLean in two different settings – really opening up on side one with a sextet that includes Curtis Fuller on trombone, Webster Young on trumpet, Gil ... CD

Montgomery Brothers

Groove Yard
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
Ah for the genius of the Montgomery Brothers – a sweet combo from the Indy scene that featured Wes Montgomery alongside brothers Monk and Buddy! Wes is on guitar, natch, Buddy plays piano, Monk bass, and Bobby Thomas joins the group on drums – all grooving in a style that's a bit like ... CD

Charlie Rouse

Takin Care Of Business
Jazzland/OJC, 1960. Used
Great session of deeply soulful tenor work, featuring Rouse in a group with Blue Mitchell, Walter Bishop, Earl May, and Art Taylor. At this point in his career, Rouse is in his pre-Monk days – but beginning to experiment heavily with a more modernist approach to hardbop. The results are ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1960. Used
A previously unreleased live date from late in the career of Ben Webster – recorded at The Renaissance in Hollywood in 1960, but unissued until nearly 25 years later! The group features Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Frank Butler on drums – and ... CD

Chuck & Gap Mangione – The Jazz Brothers

Hey Baby
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
Great early work from two jazz brothers who'd go onto great later fame – Chuck Mangione on trumpet and Gap Mangione on piano – also working here with the great Sal Nistico on tenor! The record already shows their songwriting and arranging strings, although in a small combo mode that's ... CD

Jackie McLean

Makin' the Changes
New Jazz/OJC, 1957. Used
Sweet and to-the-point work from a young Jackie McLean – the kind of hard-burning yet slightly-modern work he recorded best for Prestige in the late 50s! The album's a bit of a blowing session outing – with 2 different groups, one a sextet with Curtis Fuller, Webster Young, and Gil ... CD
