Oxford University Press

Ornette Coleman is an American composer, trumpeter, violinist, and saxophonist, and one of the major influences of the free jazz movement during the 1960s. The musician attracted a lot of superb feedback from musicians of other percussions. Gunther Schuller praised Coleman's work from a classical jazz perspective. Composer-pianist John Lewis was one of the first men to offer support for Ornette. Jazz composer George Russell showed great enthusiasm and high praise for him. John Coltrane, who was one of the most influential jazz players, was a fan of Coleman's music and he was Coleman's frequent companion.
