With two landmark albums already under its belt, the Ornette Coleman Quartet spent nearly a year out of the studio before reconvening for This Is Our Music. The album features Coleman on alto, Don Cherry on trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. "All in all, This Is Our Music keeps one of the hottest creative streaks in jazz history going strong" (AllMusic). This essential edition of Coleman's fifth album was mastered from original analog tapes at 45RPM by Bernie Grundman, pressed on two 180gram LPs, and is housed in a Stoughton case-wrapped gatefold jacket.

More than ten years playing in Chicago punk bands has ironically taught Zachary "Del" Weinberg one thing: how to write a great pop song. Del, the brains behind Choice Words, constructs catchy, three-chord guitar riffs made interesting by his hammering drums, biting lyrics, and wall-of-sound recording style.
Choice Words’ debut release on Org Music—wittily entitled “...um”—is as much a nod to 1970s Elvis Costello power-pop as to the hard-hitting 90s alternative rock of Superchunk and Superdrag. Recorded at Del’s new home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, “...um” showcases Del’s knack for crafting an earworm of a tune, while at the same time, capturing the raucous energy expected of a punk scene veteran.
Choice Words pays homage to Del’s teenage years, where he grew up in Toledo, Ohio, in the shadow of Detroit’s garage rock revival. Stuffing seven tracks into seventeen minutes, however, “...um” never strays too far from Del’s background as the former drummer of 2010s Chicago DIY punk staples Cloud Mouth and Scoundrel.
