Summary
"This is the first book about Ornette to appear in nearly a decade, and is an authoritative account of the man and his music. It gives the most complete explanation of 'harmolodics', Coleman's enigmatic musical theory. It analyzes his compositions for classical as well as jazz ensemble. A narrative discography provides information on all his authorized as well as many bootleg recordings."--Jacket
