Recorded on October 8 and 9, 1959 at Radio Recorders in Hollywood.

Change of the Century is the fourth studio album by Ornette Coleman on Atlantic, his second for the label.

Coleman's unique early sound was due in part to his use of a plastic saxophone. He had first bought a plastic horn in Los Angeles in 1954 because he was unable to afford a metal saxophone; he claimed that it sounded drier, without the pinging sound of metal. In later years, he played a metal saxophone.
