Event Details

Celebrating the music of one of music’s great innovators.

Ornette Coleman was one of jazz’s most innovative and contentious figures. He remained somewhat of a maverick throughout his career with various criticisms including his plastic saxophone, unusual tuning, discarding of musical convention and his theory of harmolodics.

But Ornette’s music was always driven by melody and through his contributions he is responsible for changing the history of jazz and music in general. Led by multi-instrumentalist Adam Simmons Origami’s own focus is on music of a strong melodic and structural nature, which has in part been inspired by Ornette’s explorations. Origami presents a range of Ornette’s compositions from throughout his career of almost 60 years and celebrates the music of one of music’s great innovators.
