Ornette Coleman - March 9, 1930--June 11, 2015

This news hurts this morning.

Here is Ornette in 2008 playing 'Lonely Woman' from 1959's The Shape of Jazz to Come.

Here's Ben Ratliff's New York Times review of the one time I was lucky enough to see him play at Carnegie Hall in 2006.

And here's the late Charlie Haden talking to Amy Goodman on Democracy Now! about being present at the revolution in the 1950s.
