I’m no sure what to expect from the concert… I love some of his older albums like Something Else! and The Shape Of Jazz To Come but I don’t know whether he plays any of the classics from them any more. Either way, it’s sure to be a magical evening with a true grand old man of jazz. At 80, I guess that it won’t be quite as blistering as in the late 1950’s, but who knows?
Those of you in Barcelona who might not be sure, I recommend you come to check him out: he’s a genius. I wrote something here about Harmolodics, the music theory he created.
Ornette Coleman, November 7th, Palau de la Música, 21hrs. Tickets: € 28-60
