Jack Reilly's Jazz blog- the Ornette Coleman debate

I've mentioned Jack Reilly's Jazz blog here before, but it's so good that I had to plug it again. He's got a great article on there right now called 'Shaping Jazz – an Ornette Coleman debate'.

Whoah! That's a fascinating article. But what would this "jazz educator" say about Anthony Braxton. Also, what would Bird have thunk of all of these Jazz educators getting everyone to play through the omnibook and deriving the "rules" of bebop from his solos?

cheers

Hi David,

There was plenty of discussion of this article on my blog, when it first appeared back in October: http://be-jazz.blogspot.com/2006/10/shaping-ornette-darius-brubeck-debate.html
