Product details

Although he first came to prominence on the jazz scene a half century ago, Ornette Coleman still scares people. But his compositions, rooted as they were in classic blues, have long appealed to jazz listeners of every stripe. It's to Mark Lockett's credit that he has chosen four of Ornette's most accessible yet stimulating tunes and included them on this CD.

Press Quotes

“Here is an engagingly quirky number from Melbourne drummer Mark Lockett. With a crew of musicians featuring pianist Mark Fitzgibbon, bassist Desmond White, trombonist Shannon Barnett, and Paul Van Ross on tenor sax, he has put together a tribute to Ornette Coleman, the avant-garde alto sax player who so shocked the jazz world in the 1950s with his free-falling harmonies and bouncing rhythms. . . . There are many beautiful moments here. Check out, for instance, Lockett's work on his light little Monk-like number Mr Pickles, which starts with the drums gently leading in, with van Ross and Barnett doubling the tight lines, four bars or even less at a time, and some solid work from White. Or Fitzgibbon's superb attack on Monk's Trinkle Trinkle, his chords and solos way outside and jarring, but swinging hard and streaming with ideas from chromatic runs to blues-inflected flashes. One of the real standouts here is Coleman's Latin-inflected pieceJayne.”
