In Berlin

Ornette Coleman

Ornette Plays Piano, Too!

In this segment filmed in Berlin in 1972 alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman plays some great improv, at one point showing of his skill as a multi-instrumentalist by switching to the piano.

Throughout the ’60s Coleman had continued to indulge in his string textures interest and became a Down Beat magazine Hall-of-Famer just three years prior to this performance.
