Ornette Coleman

By Dominic July 9th, 2015

Last month jazz legend Ornette Coleman passed away. In a career spanning almost 60 years he revolutionised the genre, taking it into new territories and pioneering the free jazz movement . Of his beginnings he told the Guardian in an interview ““I didn’t know music was a style and that it had rules and stuff, I thought it was just sound. I thought you had to play to play, and I still think that.” RIP.
