But what sets Ornette Coleman apart from these other musicians of that particular time is his understanding of harmony. The one most important innovation that takes place on his 1959 masterpiece The Shape of Jazz to Come is the lack of chordal structure. While most jazz music relies on a chorded instrument, such as a piano or guitar, Ornette's group, comrpised of Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins, did not rely on the significant limitations provided by chorded instruments.

But Texas-born alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman eschewed conventional harmony and form altogether. And with The Shape of Jazz to Come, he began a stint with Atlantic Records that remains one of jazz’s grandest achievements. The Atlantic years are compiled on Beauty Is a Rare Thing. He also debuted one of the most expressive and atypical jazz quartets of all time, with Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Of all the striking jazz innovations that coalesced in the year 1959, Ornette Coleman’s was the most radical. Miles Davis streamlined chord progressions and carved out room for melodic space on Kind of Blue. But Texas-born alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman eschewed conventional harmony and form altogether.
Although Coleman initially wished for the album to be titled Focus on Sanity, after one of the songs on the album, it was ultimately titled The Shape of Jazz to Come at the urging of Atlantic producer Nesuhi Ertegun, who felt that the title would give consumers "an idea about the uniqueness of the L. Released on Atlantic Records in 1959, it was his debut on the label and his first album featuring his working quartet including himself, trumpeter Don Cherry, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Billy Higgins.
