Ornette Today, Bix Tomorrow
MARCH 9, 2009
Today on WKCR, Ornette Coleman birthday broadcast. Tomorrow Bix Beiderbecke.
Two days of back-to-back 24 hour listening to jazz genius from two eras.
Ornette is still with us at 79, creating new music and challenging listeners.
Bix didn’t last long, but he left a lot of beautiful playing on some great records and some beautiful playing on some terrible records.
