There's a great version of it on Marzette Watts' hella out-of-print Savoy record.

2 years pass...

I've decided that Ornette's Lonely Woman is my favourite piece of jazz music. Not a lot seems to come close - or does it? IS there anything else out there as melodic and plaintive and slightly-skewed as this? Big question, I know.

Yes, Cecil Taylor's version of "This Nearly Was Mine."
