In a previous post, I shared a great interview with Dave Bryant, a pianist and composer known for his work with Ornette Coleman. I’ve been thinking about Ornette a lot these days, after hearing the sad news of his recent passing. The world has lost a master musician and a thoughtful human being. Though I never met Ornette, I have been trying to process his wisdom, as filtered through Dave’s teaching. The above interview focuses on Dave’s recollections of Ornette.
Words of wisdom from Dave Bryant, a master musician I have had the privilege of studying with for the past two years.
