Ornette and TBP in Newark

Sigh, I wish I could have been there, but alas it was not to be. Ornette Coleman and The Bad Plus rocked the house in Newark:

Now 75, the alto saxophonist, trumpeter, violinist is a bona fide jazz legend who only plays a select handful of dates each year, one of which will be Saturday at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark with The Bad Plus in support. 'You need more than just players to make music' Coleman argues. 'I have to find those other people, too. I have not with this group, but I am constantly looking for them.'
