Summary
Music critic Tim Page interviews Ornette Coleman, an American saxophonist, violinist, trumpeter and composer. They discuss Coleman's career as a jazz musician and a composer. Coleman talks about his earlier career playing in church, followed by pop music and bebop, and how in 1940s and 1950s he started to compose jazz music. He also explains his conception of bebop, and his later style called "free jazz." He talks about the group Primetime Band and his experience with the combination of various styles. He says he was always more interested in the world of music than the world of business. He gives advice to young composers not to focus on success but on result the piece they produce when they want to be heard, and not to copy styles of other composers but to follow their own.
