After posting yesterday's quote from Charles Mingus, I jumped on the bus home and unfolded The Guardian. In a weird bit of synchronicity, there was a great interview with free-jazz genius Ornette Coleman (he's in town to play Royal Festival Hall on July 9th).
It's a fascinating interview, well worth a read, especially when Ornette expounds his philosophies, which culiminate in this quote:
"The idea is all there is. Trust me."
