The Cool Hall of Fame #65
Happy Birthday, Ornette Coleman


Even when he's blowing out candles (77), it probably sounds pretty cool.

Just a heads up...there's a new remastered reissue of The Shape of Jazz to Come out there, courtesy of Atlantic Records. Look for the one with the cardboard cover (it's cheap too!). I don't think it has bonus tracks, but it sounds pretty sweet. Part of a new budget line of Atlantic Jazz remasterings, including things like Mingus' Blue & Roots, Monk & Blakey, Coltrane Jazz and so on.
