Ornette Coleman: The Rhapsody Interview
Released: Oct 2006
Label: Real Networks
Ornette Coleman is one of the true immortals. As much revolutionary musician as he is metaphysician, philosopher and futurist, he set melody free from its shackles, offering a different set of compass points for jazz that had nothing to do with chords and structure -- all rather serendipitously when he misread a song book at the age of 14. He talks to Rhapsody about love, humanity, the importance of good clothes and how he put the free in free jazz.
