Ornette Coleman, RIP


Ornette Coleman, one of the greatest jazz musicians to ever live and quite possibly the greatest jazz musician living in 2015, has died at the age of 85.

I guess I’d now give that greatest living jazz musician title to either Cecil Taylor or William Parker. Probably the latter.

….Also of course Sonny Rollins, who actually probably does take that title.

[SL]: The Coleman show I saw in 2008 was easily one of the 5 best musical experiences of my life. This a huge loss — he was a true giant of American art.
