“I didn’t need to worry about keys, chords
and melody if I had that emotion that brought tears and laughter to people’s
hearts.” Ornette
Coleman
Originally
commissioned by director Conrad Rooks for his a semi-autobiographic fable of
drug addiction, film Chappaqua
(1965), saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s startlingly beautiful music was not in
fact used on the final soundtrack (replaced by a Ravi Shankar score). Instead, Columbia
Records released it as a double-album without promotion, and one of Coleman’s most
haunting recordings was soon out of print. Subsequent re-issues have been
sporadic; in small, hard-to-find editions.
Chappaqua Suite
was the first recording to feature Coleman’s trio with David Izenson on bass
and drummer Charles Moffett. It was also his first recording with an 11 piece
studio orchestra (arranged and conducted by
Joseph Tekula). Saxophonist Pharoah Sanders is featured on Part Four of the suite.

Coleman
actually appears briefly in the film. William S. Burroughs has a featured role.
