Just got back from San Francisco about a week and a half ago. What a great town! I went with Merkus, the singer of muzzleLoader, and while there we saw Ornette Coleman w/ his son Denardo Coleman on drums and Charnett Moffett on bass. The last time he was on the west coast was 1994.(Also in SF, as he had a miserable time in LA earlier in his life and doesn't come here at all anymore. I believe he hasn't been to LA in 30 years or so.) Ornette is 73 years old and still he played for about 2 hours and 20 minutes! He premiered all new music and it was well received. The consensus was that the only bad part was the bassist. He was downright annoying. He had three tricks and detracted from the rest of the trio by showboating and not knowing how to use his effects pedals. I expected much more from him. I was embarrased to watch and listen to him. Oh well, I am glad I was able to see one of the truly great Jazz legends.
