Default Re: What was your first time listening to Free Jazz by Ornette Coleman like?

Ornette certainly came from bop, although if you had suggested to bop musicians at the time that Ornette's music was bop, you'd have probably started a riot :)

One of my faves that kind of defies categorization. It's unmistakably jazz, though, and (IMO) unmistakably great: http://youtu.be/DNbD1JIH344
