    Released originally in 1959, TWINS gathers the tracks that didn't make it onto Ornette Coleman's studio albums during his tenure at Atlantic Records. "First Take" is a rehearsal version of the saxophonist's famous "Free Jazz" piece (featured on the Atlantic album of the same name), and has Coleman's two dazzling quartets (which featured, between them, trumpeters Don Cherry and Freddie Hubbard, reedist Eric Dolphy, bassists Charlie Haden and Scot Lafaro, and drummers Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins) playing at the same time.
    "Monk and the Nun" is another highlight from the remaining four tracks, especially the solos from Cherry and the leader. This compilation doesn't have the brilliance of Coleman's Atlantic classics like THE SHAPE OF JAZZ TO COME, and is therefore not essential, but there's enough impressive playing here to make it worthwhile for Coleman fans.
