Of Human Feelings is an album by American jazz saxophonist, composer,
and bandleader Ornette Coleman. It was recorded on April 25, 1979, at
CBS Studios in New York City with his band Prime Time (pictured), which
featured guitarists Charlie Ellerbee and Bern Nix, bassist Jamaaladeen
Tacuma, and drummers Calvin Weston and Coleman's son Denardo. It
followed the saxophonist's failed attempt to record a direct-to-disc
session earlier in the same year and was the first jazz album to be
recorded digitally in the United States. The album's jazz-funk music
continued Coleman's harmolodic approach to improvisation with Prime
Time. He also drew on rhythm and blues influences from earlier in his
career, and applied free jazz principles from his music during the 1960s
to elements of funk. Following a change in management, Coleman signed
with Island Records, and the album was released in 1982 by its
subsidiary label Antilles Records. Critics generally praised the album's

Wikiquote quote of the day:
Einstein has a feeling for the central order of things. He can
detect it in the simplicity of natural laws. We may take it that he felt
this simplicity very strongly and directly during his discovery of the
theory of relativity. Admittedly, this is a far cry from the contents of
religion. I don't believe Einstein is tied to any religious tradition,
and I rather think the idea of a personal God is entirely foreign to
him. But as far as he is concerned there is no split between science and
religion: the central order is part of the subjective as well as the
objective realm, and this strikes me as being a far better starting
