Default The Official Ornette Coleman Thread

This is the official Ornete Coleman thread. Tell us about the great man.

Spoiler for !:
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

Well, I will admit I am an Ornette Coleman free and avant-garde Jazz enthusiast. When I first heard The Shape of Jazz to Come, it was part epiphany, part déjà vu. I remember a few criticism coming from MB members when the album was up for review in MB Classic Albums. Those wet blankets didn't speak my language man. I figured why I am more accepting than others is because I became a fan through osmosis, absorbing his style and ideas through those he had influence before I even I got a chance to hear him play. That's what I mean by part déjà vu.

I read but didn't entirely agree with the Benny Green article. It comes off bit sophomoric, and he throws in a couple of left-handed compliments - I felt.

It's hard to take, with any seriousness, a guy like Benny Green.
He's been dead for over 20 years and that piece was written around '65
when his love for Gershwin and Broadway was in full bloom,
so a grain of salt please. Believe me, there were no compliments.
