NO WAY! I don't believe it. Ornette is gone. Oh my - the world has lost a grand soul!

I wasn't prepared for it, never could have been, there will be one color less from today.

I'll be playing Lonely Woman all day. Peace to you, Mr. Coleman.

Ornette Coleman - Thank you for your music
He was 85 - seems he was reasonably healthy for most of his life up to his death.
He has CHANGED the way we perceive Music (not only Jazz).
He had a real character - we call it deep.

This Is Our Music.

I am lost for words still, but I don't think I would have been on this blog without Ornette and his groups bringing me into free jazz. Maybe he can get a decent record deal in heaven.

very sad news indeed.
deepest thanks to ornette for all of the beautiful music he has given the world.
i got to see ornette play a trio show with billy higgins and charlie haden in LA in 1990.
don cherry was unable to take part due to a recent surgery.
needless to say the music was beautiful and i was honored to be there.
i will be listening to live at the caravan of dreams and body meta today.
peace all!

The world's a more vibrant place because of what Mr. Coleman gave to us. In his music and in his spirit. Blessings.

RIP Ornette, Amen. Were there D/L links in this post and now they're gone? Don't see any links in any comments. Thank you.
