Part of the Program: Jazz at Woodmere

Ornette Coleman and the Future History of Jazz

6:00 pm
8:00 pm
Woodmere Art Museum

Jazz is an ever-evolving, moving, and searching style of music that sometimes defies description. Ornette Coleman was a saxophonist and innovator of “free jazz,” an improvisational approach whose lasting impact on the genre is now history. Saxophonist Julian Pressley takes on some of Coleman’s classic compositions—“Lonely Woman,” “The Shape of Jazz to Come,” and more.
