Ornette Coleman - 1930 / 2015
As a tribute to Ornette Coleman who left us orphans today,
one of my favorit guitar player, James Blood Ulmer with Jamaaladeen Tacuma on electric funky bass & the amazing drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson: a dream's trio!
Rage, groove, harmolody, funk, harmony, speed, sumptuous chorus: thanks to the legendary Ornette Coleman, their "godfather" who formed they three in the 70s.
"I loved the idea of the bass guitar attaining freedom from having to be enslaved by a riff, with a goal of attaining a true musical idea! "
et aussi Phalanx live , 1985
with James Blood Ulmer - guitar, vocals
George Adams - tenor saxophone
Amin Ali - bass
Grant Calvin Weston - drums (another of my favorite drummers)
and to listen Ornette himself, just listen to your records!
