Finally in possession of the MacArthur grant he long deserved, the fecund jazz innovator Ornette Coleman has returned from a seven-year recording layoff with Tone Dialing (Harmolodic/Verve). There's Bach on it, tablas and rap. But it still sounds like nothing but Ornette, polyrhythmic and gorgeous.
