Ornette Coleman performs in Germany live at Castle Ansbach with his sextet in 1978.
Ornette’s take on jazz allows the musicians limitless artistic freedom far removed from the stylistic confines of hard bop and bebop.
Though it has been perceived as abstract, “Free Jazz” is actually an attempt to return jazz to its roots in collective improvisation.
