One thought on “Ornette Coleman, Black Music and Caping for Whiteness

  1. Three quotes I feel pay homage to the late legendary jazz innovator, Ornette Coleman:

    1) "Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn.

    They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art"...Charlie Parker.

    2) "Music expresses the human experience so specifically that when you attempt to find language to describe that, words

    fall short. What's falling short in that equation is language, not the music. Music expresses things about the human

    condition that can't be expressed no other way. That's why it's so important"...Mike Glaser, musician.

    3) Charlie Parker [ Bird ] would have appreciated an artist like Ornette Coleman; "aspiring beyond what we inherited".
