the empty foxhole, filled again

It only took a few weeks for Destination: Out to make itself indispensable. It's now cemented its place in jazz blog history: drop everything and go download three tracks from Ornette Coleman's recent three-bass Carnegie Hall concert.

I'll admit to near-total ignorance of Coleman's career beyond the early stuff, so I was grateful for D:O's first Coleman installment. His tone at Carnegie, though, is incredible, as classic and delicious as any you could care to name, starting with Johnny Hodges. Sound Grammar should be great.
