The best way of failing to emulate a role model is to imitate it. But on this album there are allusions and associations with Ornette’s music as well as spontaneous original compositions – but there are no imitations. Drawing on the resources of Ornette Coleman is equal to drawing on the resources of freedom: Here, an et cetera is not a cliche, but a crucial part of the whole – and so on, and so forth, one thing leads to another. Music in the spirit of Coleman goes far beyond Ornette.
