Ornette Coleman: First Beginnings - Down Beat July 1960

John Tynan writes with enthusiasm on hearing Ornette Coleman (b. March 9, 1930) for the first time and the mixed reactions Coleman's playing received. It's interesting to note that Tynan was an early advocate of Coleman yet he also famously referred to Coltrane and Dolphy as playing "anti-jazz" - I will post that article sometime soon along with Coltrane & Dolphy's response.
