$ 15.30 $ 17.95


Portrait of Ornette Coleman, mysterious and enigmatic man. Featuring musicians who owe him a lot.


a film by Jacques Goldstein, 2016, 61', stereo.

Jacques Goldstein goes on a quest for a spectre, a spectre that haunts Jazz. Who wasOrnette Coleman, the saxophonist and composer whom we owe the invention of Free Jazz to? If his seminal body of work is now - rightfully so - fully recognized, the man remained deliberately mysterious and enigmatic. The director makes attempts to approach him. He visits and interviews musicians who owe him a lot. A portrait of Ornette takes shape as these sketches gradually unfold, the man who thought that beauty was a rare thing.


a film by Stéphane Jourdain, 2016, 56', stereo, 5.1.

From his career debut within the ONJ (french National Jazz Orchestra) to his duet GRAND BAZAR with Eve Ris- ser, Antonin-Tri Hoang's music is reminiscent of the late Ornette Coleman, with its florid lyricism and a similar taste for controlled skidding. Commissioned by Banlieues Bleues, APPARITIONS - ORNETTE aims at summo- ning the spirit of the free jazz godfather. Antonin-Tri Hoang offers dreams, wanderings, evocative bridges. Not a revival, but a survival. His NOVEMBRE quartet, joined by its many guests, masters the art of zapping and collage between eras and references. The film is the story of this creation and of these apparitions.
