Default Ornette Coleman RIP

Jazz innovator Ornette Coleman died Thursday at age 85. A rare kind of genius. RIP.

Ornette definitely chose the jazz path less traveled....I admired his musical individuality, although I had a difficult time accessing his music. But, there were some grand moments where it came through for me....... Many people, even his fellow Jazz musicians, had a hard time figuring out what Coleman's approach was about.

I love Roy Eldridge's quote when asked about Coleman's music,

"I'd listened to him all kinds of ways. I listened to him high and I listened to him cold sober. I even played with him. I think he's jiving baby."

RIP Ornette....you were definitely one of a kind.

I don't think Ornette's early albums are too inaccessible by modern standards, far more beauty than the "paint by numbers" jazz that prevails today

I'm a huge Fan and collected many titles.

In Early 90's He released two CD's, Sound Museum - Hidden Man and Sound Museum - Three Woman. Both cd's have the same song titles as the other but with different interpretations. Some of the best music music that I own.

Why is so much of his stuff almost impossible to get hold of or so expensive? I'm trying to find a copy of "Of Human Feelings" at a reasonable price.........

Price of CD or LP?
The price of LP's is silly. Last fall I sold my entire collection on ebay.

The Coleman SACD's have a high asking price.

I don't know "of Human Feelings" - Good Luck

"At The Golden Circle" - More goodies!

I tend to use deezer most, but neither it nor spotify had it, Youzeek is just an easy more music orientated access to youtube I believe.
