Ornette Coleman & Denardo Coleman

The pioneering saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman “expanded the jazz idiom more than anyone except perhaps Louis Armstrong,” (All About Jazz) but his influence reaches far beyond jazz. His son Denardo Coleman, an outstanding drummer who debuted on record with his father at the age of 10, convenes a deep and surprising lineup of special guests for a long-overdue exploration and celebration of Ornette’s music and spirit, with his own band (Al Macdowell, bass; Tony Falanga, bass; Charles Ellerbe, guitar; Antoine Roney, sax) at the core. Special guests include Bachir Attar and The Master Musicians of Jajouka, Bill Laswell, Bruce Hornsby, Flea, David MurrayGeri Allen, Henry Threadgill, James Blood Ulmer, John ZornLaurie Anderson, Nels ClinePatti Smith, Ravi Coltrane, Savion GloverThurston Moore and many more.
