In Which I Worship Ornette Coleman

I love Ornette Coleman. Charlie Parker and John Coltrane are wonderful, of course, but I prefer Coleman's unremitting and rewarding sax style. "Song X"? Why not? "Street Woman"? Sweet, man. "Law Years"? All ears. "The Good Life"? Indeed. Free JazzScience Fiction Sessions? Skies of America? There's a few hours of your life well-spent. He's a great saxophonist, maybe the best.

And but so, I was elated to discover, on the MP-free jazz site Destination Out!, a tune with Charlie Haden on bass and Coleman playing trumpet. It's cracked, but it's very good.

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
