the gospel of unlimited possibilities

Worth a read:
"Ornette Coleman's Time," Rolling Stone 547, Mar 9, 1989.

"[It's music for] people who can dig that there is more than one possibility. That's what Ornette always represented to me. No matter what direction you go in, there's always going to be other possibilities."  -Jerry Garcia

"I started going to church and taking the horn.  Have you ever gone to church and heard somebody who don't know how to sing at all?  Yet it sounds so beautiful.  The church was singing, and sometimes they would be singing in the key of Z!  Meanwhile, I'm playing with them.  And I thought, 'If I'm able to do this now, why can't I play like this outside?'"  -Ornette Coleman
