I got to see Prime Time 3 nights in a row. With the 2 bass players, 2 gtrs, 2 drummers and Ornette on violin & plastic alto. Met the whole band & bought drinks. They were all real nice guys. Ornette himself was kind of tiny, I had expected him to be a big guy due to the great impact he's had.

Also saw Prime Time at the Paramount in Seattle with my soon-to-be wife. she didn't care much for the "insect music", but stayed with me anyways

His music for me is still at times so hard to crack but it's been beyond rewarding when it happened. A real treasure. It's always great to be humbled by someone's brilliant body of work and have your jaws dropping.

Oh damn. Yes this is very sad indeed.

One of two jazz musicians who I felt artistically and intellectually unqualified to listen to for many years before finally digging into his iconic discography (the other was Thelonous Monk).

I still feel that claiming to understand or fully grasp Coleman's music would be hubris. He was a true pioneer of experimental music, and one of the founding fathers of the musical avante grade.

He will, of course, be missed.

oh man, RIP!! the song Virgin Beauty just destroys me. cant remember the first time I heard it. but I heard it. long ago.

his music puts a smile on my face and I sometimes laugh out loud. or something there that is deeply sad. a extreme balance of both worlds.

sometimes listening to his music is hard like staring down at a pin point, but once you're there, you're there riding a wave of vibrations. Coltrane had that period too.

nothing intellectual here. I bought Free Jazz because of Ken Burns.

it's been said a thousand times but it's all about Lonely Woman. basically, it's not what you hear Coleman playing but what you hear as a whole. sweet stuff.
