Beyond his recorded music and the scores for his shows, there's a wealth of material written by Coleman, either singly or with collaborators, that has been preserved in one fashion or another.

This select list is meant to, when combined with the discography and the show song listing, meant to provide an overall aural snapshot of the diversity of Coleman's output.
