Free Jazz, Harmolodics, and Ornette Coleman discusses Ornette Colemana€™s musical philosophy of qHarmolodics, q an improvisational system deeply inspired by the Civil Rights Movement. Falling under the guise of qfree jazz, q Harmolodics can be difficult to understand, even for seasoned musicians and musicologists. Yet this book offers a clear and thorough approach to these complex methods, outlining Colemana€™s position as the developer of a logicala€”and historically significanta€”system of jazz improvisation. Included here are detailed musical analyses of improvisations, accompanied by full transcriptions. Intimate interviews between the author and Coleman explore the deeper issues at work in Harmolodics, issues of race, class, sex, and poverty. The principle of human equality quickly emerges as a central tenet of Colemana€™s life and music. Harmolodics is best understood when viewed in its essential form, both as a theory of improvisation and as an artistic expression of racial and human equality.Have two bass players or one. It opens up the whole thing. It does. But the thing about ... Copious transcriptions exist, including my own, yet they only contain note heads, names, and time values. The meaning of the music is deeper than that.
