Al MacDowell’s Just Ornette Quartet

Electric piccolo bassist Al MacDowell—who started out playing with Ornette Coleman in 1975—leads this veteran ensemble comprising fellow Coleman collaborator Tony Falanga on double bass, drummer Tony Lewis, and pianist Ron Thompson. Joined by Grammy-nominated saxophonist Jay Rodriguez and guided by Coleman’s groundbreaking harmolodic technique, the group pushes the boundaries of free jazz into the outer limits and beyond.
