I found myself enjoying the album from the first time I heard it. I've never been able to listen to it on anything but a good pair of speakers with excellent instrument separation, though; on headphones the album sounds just like a mess and I find it impossible to follow. Free Jazz is in my opinion much easier to get into than Coltrane's Ascension for example, which I also enjoyed from first listen but could only properly follow after spending a couple years learning to listen to jazz first. I must admit that free jazz is without question one of the most difficult genres to approach and learn to enjoy. As far as Coleman's Free Jazz goes, I find it pretty tame in comparison to things that have come after it. By no means do I mean to disparage it; Free Jazz is an excellent and historically important album, and a must-hear for any serious music lover I feel.

Listening to the album now via Rdio and I can completely agree on listening in to the album with headphones.  However, I feel the same with most Atlantic "Stereo" pressings (including the remastered edition of Coltrane's My Favorite Things) when listening with headphones.  They tend to project better and sound much more listenable with speakers.  On the topic of free jazz, I've studied numerous amounts of courses on the subject and find myself falling in love with the genre almost immediately.  Its an adventure played out all on it's own. I've heard only a few of Coleman's work, but I'm adding this to my wish list immediately.
