Change of the Century is the fourth album by jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman, released on Atlantic Records in May 1960. It sold very well from soon after its release. Recording sessions for the album took place on October 8 and 9, 1959, in New York City.

In the liner notes, Coleman stressed that the album was “a group effort,” and wrote: “When our group plays, before we start out to play, we do not have any idea what the end result will be. Each player is free to contribute what he feels in the music at any given moment… our final results depend entirely on the musicianship, emotional make-up and taste of the individual member.”
