Beschreibung: c.o.d.e. ist ein Tribute an zwei Zentralgestirne der Jazzgeschichte: Ornette Coleman und Eric Dolphy, die mit ihren initialen dem Projekt auch den Namen gegeben haben. Die vier Musiker, die sich zur Neusichtung dieser mittlerweile "klassisch" gewordenen Musik erstmals zusammengefunden haben, belegen deren weltumspannende und generationenübergreifende Relevanz. Die Österreicher Max Nagl und Wolfgang Reisinger treffen auf den überaus umtriebigen Amerikaner Ken Vandermark und den Australischen shooting-star Clayton Thomas.

Description: c.o.d.e. is a tribute to two major stars in the history of Jazz: Ornette Coleman (*1930) and Eric Dolphy (1928-1964), both to be heard on the legendary „Free Jazz“ (1960) recording and whose initials give the project its name. 
The project can be quite literally described as „global“. The four musicians, who where brought together through the initiative of album producer and Handsemmel Records founder Klaus Nüchtern, come from Europe, the USA and Australia and, for the most part, play together for the first time. To provide a new view of this now “classic” music, Austrians Max Nagl (as) and Wolfgang Reisinger (dr) come together with the much travelled American Ken Vandermark (cl, bcl, ts) and the Australian shooting star Clayton Thomas (b). The eight tracks on the album – four each from Eric Dolphy and Ornette Coleman – were specially arranged by the individual band members for this ensemble.
As with previous albums from Handsemmel Records, the order of the tracks follows the principle of a fictitious A and B side.
c.o.d.e. is a co-production of Handsemmel Records and cracked anegg records.
