Containing newly remastered audio, Genesis of Genius: The Contemporary Albums combines legendary Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s albums for Lester Koenig’s Contemporary Records.


This deluxe edition features Coleman’s first albums as a bandleader, Something Else!!!! and Tomorrow is the Question!. Both albums were originally recorded by legendary engineer Roy DuNann and have been newly mastered by Bernie Grundman, whom DuNann was a mentor for.


Also included is a 32-page booklet with photos and extensive new liner notes by Grammy Award-winning music historian Ashley Kahn.


"Listening to the first two albums saxophonist Ornette Coleman released under his own name today, it can be a little challenging to surmise exactly what about this then-young player made his peers in the late '50s lose their minds. But his approach to melody and structure upset the status quo so much that, as legend has it, Max Roach socked Coleman in the mouth after hearing him play. Jazz, and Ornette, have gone to far more challenging places since Contemporary Records released these records but their initial appearance sent a small shockwave through the musical community that modern players are still feeling the aftershocks of. This lovingly constructed set offers a chance to hear just how important these albums were and still are. Bernie Grundman used the original analog tapes for these sharp new pressings of both Something Else!!!! and Tomorrow Is The Question, and Craft Recordings packaged them in a handsome blue box with a booklet, featuring masterful liner notes from Ashley Kahn, tucked inside." - Robert Ham, Paste Magazine
