Ornette, Blood, Higgins, Sirone, 1974

I love YouTube.

Looking for the Ornette Coleman and Last Exit videos mentioned here, I found this video from Italian TV of Ornette Coleman in 1974, playing "Dancing In Your Head/The Good Life/Theme From a Symphony/whatever he's calling it this week" with a quartet with James Blood Ulmer on guitar, Sirone on bass, Billy Higgins on drums. This is the only documentation I know of of Blood in Ornette's group. woot!

Here's Ornette on Saturday Night Live, introduced by Milton Berle. Here's Last Exit.
