The saxophonist and bandleader was born 91 years ago today. When people ask me about my single favorite musician, it's a split between Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman. It's great that he lived long enough to get the respect he so richly deserved. I hate that he's gone, but there's so much music to absorb, and I listen to him most days. If you like this, there's so much more to explore. Ornette could change your life!
