Like I said, the novelty never wears off, the song gives me this little smile every week. Part of that is just purely the reminder that no matter how many sucky things happen in the world, at least there are wonderfully creative folks like Last out there.

First heard Ornette at about age 10. The local library (out in suburbia) had a copy of NEW YORK IS NOW! and the sleeve just seemed PACKED with ALL-CAPS ENERGY, with exclamation marks! ... It blew my freaking face off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:28pm coelacanth:

damn. 'came in just for a bit of internet research; luckily caught a James Last tribute; now i'm done but having trouble getting back to work.

A bit surprised to hear that Ornette was only 85. One of those cats that seemed to have been around forever, or at least a very long while.

Avatar Thu. 6/11/15 3:33pm Claw!:

Full disclosure: I've never really been into free jazz myself, but I respect Mr. Coleman and the fact that he was able to take jazz in a totally different direction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/11/15 3:34pm fred:

I only saw Ornette once, five or six years ago. The show was great, but what struck me the most was how he remained on stage to sign stuff and chat until the venue's staff got *really* insistent that he leave. I've rarely seen such joy in a musician during and after the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:34pm Cecile:

Ornette and Mingus got me hooked into jazz. then I worked backwards, sideways and forward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:34pm Rory:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/11/15 3:40pm dale:

hard for me to equate form, line and color to musical notes, but i suppose it can be done,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:43pm coelacanth:

jazz was originally the music of deviants and people outside of respectable society. "jazz" literally meant "noise". "free jazz" or "out jazz" is actually the only kind of jazz that truly lives up to the name "jazz".
( and conveniently,for my point's sake,is the only jazz i really love!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:44pm Cecile:

but it's still pretty respectable now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:45pm coelacanth:

...as much as i Love and immeasurably respect Ornette Coleman, his music is usually not as cacophonous as i'd like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:46pm Cecile:

still, you gotta have a break from Peter Brotzmann from time to time, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:47pm coelacanth:

Cecile i thought to say that because of the reference to fine wine, and how funny it is that jazz is considered respectable; refined; even "high-brow" now!
Avatar Thu. 6/11/15 3:47pm Claw!:

Fish, I take it Albert Ayler-type stuff is more your speed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:48pm Cecile:

Bear!, i actually like very little Ayler! his wine annoys the shit outa me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:50pm Cecile:

yeah, too much brotzmann is like being shot in the face with a cannon full of iron shards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:50pm northguineahills:

I always thought jazz came from the nineteen noughts slang of jass, which meant a fart, both in smell and noise.
Avatar Thu. 6/11/15 3:51pm Claw!:

Hah! Well, then we have *that* in common. :-) You said 'cacophony,' so Ayler came to mind right away.
Avatar    Thu. 6/11/15 3:52pm Chris from DC:

I started to appreciate less cacophony when I got into Sonny Simmons I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Music is often described in visual terms: 'dark', 'bright'...I can't help but compare what happened w/ Music in the Modern era w/ what happened in Painting & such - it seems natural & reflexive to do so to me. It seems to me the same sort of argument from people that they can't 'relate' or 'understand' Free Jazz as saying Picasso shouldn't have two eyes on the same side of someone's face & there's no Art to it.
- Jazz is the American Classical Music - & I can understand that - esp. for some African Americans - you're supposed to dress in suits for it & everything...The term 'Free Jazz' often implied not just Freeing the Forms - but the Contexts like that too - often very Political & such - like everything else into the 1960s...Gotta imagine how this Ornette hit people in the late 1950s.
I think the words & terms 'Jazz' & 'Rock'n'Roll' can & did mean a lot of things - but primarily Sex.
  Thu. 6/11/15 3:52pm cheri:

thank you Fabio for the wonderful tributes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:54pm Cecile:

I like an awful lot of cacophonous stuff. I do like the beat to be a little less abstract, but there are some free improvisors in both percussion and reeds I really like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:54pm Cecile:

and what cheri said. I gotta go to a meeting. Be back soon I hope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/11/15 3:55pm fred:

@Cecile: That's the good Brötzmann. Sadly, I've heard a lot of the sleepwalking one. Though I've been more lucky in the past couple of years, I hope the trend holds
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/11/15 3:55pm dale:

jazz did mean sex. i remember scatman carruthers on mike douglas - mike asked about him playing jazz clubs early in his career and scatman said 'no, no, no - i won't use that word. that means dirty things...'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 3:57pm coelacanth:

Cecile i just saw your analogy! Yeah,it is!
- but i still love Brotzmann!

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63 OMG
     Thu. 6/11/15 4:35pm Listener Robert:

It's been assumed by many (me for a while) that "jazz" originally meant "fuck", so jazz music was called that because it was imagined to be the music of fucking, or music to fuck by. But I understand those who've researched it better have mostly concluded that the music had that name 1st, then it became a euphemism for sexual intercourse.
Avatar Thu. 6/11/15 4:35pm johnforz:

ha, that album is so good (and one of my favorite front/back covers)... also Body Meta. Of Human Feelings is another really weird one that's kinda great. You can trace those records directly to a lot of English Post-Punk of the time.. he was so influential
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 4:38pm Cecile:

It is said that jazz started in the bordellos of New Orleans.

Mine too, johnforz. I think Ornette never made a terrible record, and he never sold out to pop. that's something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/11/15 4:38pm Cecile:

not that I don't like some pop-jazz, but Ornette wasn't pop, and I don't think he had a pop mentality.
     Thu. 6/11/15 4:39pm Listener Robert:

See, bordellos must've had class just to have music!

oh Zapf passed? He was one of the last great calligraphic masters as well as being known for his type.
  Thu. 6/11/15 4:48pm Dean:

OED speculates that "jazz" might have been a variant of "jasm," which means "energy, spirit, 'pep,'" and that "jasm" is apparently a variant of "jism," which means the same. A second meaning of "jism," also recorded in OED: semen, sperm.

Yeah, Zapf's a loss to the print world.

re James Last, I don't know if this got mentioned yet, but what's also interesting about him is he's one of two Germans that made it big in England after the war. The other was a famous soccer goalkeeper. It's an interesting phenomenon, given how vilified Germans became and remained in England for decades thereafter.
