Charlie Haden's composition "Out of Focus" (a duo with Don Cherry on The Golden Number) is based on a quote from his opening solo on Ornette Coleman's "Focus in Sanity." Which is doubtless why it's called that.
(Did I mention that the night before I went to Australia I was in New York and saw Ornette play? Oh yeah. He did "Lonely Woman" as an encore, in true rock star fashion.)Posted by Matt Weiner at June 24, 2006 09:27 PM
