Also reminiscent of Branford's "Trio Jeepy" from several years back.

No problem playing Josh's new CD on the radio because there's no
chordal instrument -- Sonny Rollins, the trio Air, opened up these
doors long ago. Digging Joshua's new one.

P.S. Ornette's concentration on melody was underscored by "letting"
the emotional message of the song dictate or determine the form, a la
blues musicians before W.C. Handy standardized blues form so groups
could play it. That is, bluesmen wouldn't often sing/play standard
length phrases: they'd play/sing whatever length it took to get the
message across.

And for all the discussion of harmony it would seem the average
listener is more thrown when you take away a steady, determined,
measurable, predictable rhythm.
