Description & Features+

Free Jazz, Harmolodics and Ornette Coleman, Stephen Rush Paperback.

Free Jazz, Harmolodics and Ornette Coleman discusses Ornette Coleman?s theory of improvisation, called "Harmolodics," an improvisational system deeply inspired by the civil rights movement. As Harmolodics falls under the guise of "free jazz," it can be difficult to understand. This book offers a thorough and clear answer to this system, and highlights Ornette?s position as a developer of a logical and historically important system of jazz improvisation. The author includes detailed transcriptions with musical analyses.

More than twenty interviews with Ornette explore the deeper issues behind improvisation, especially issues of race, class and poverty. In this series of conversations it becomes clear that the principle of human equality is central to any explanation of his life and music. Harmolodics becomes understandable when viewed in its essential form as both a theory of improvisation, and an artistic expression of racial and human equality.
