ENCOUNTERing Ornette

ENCOUNTERing Ornette

stylus meets vinyl
explores the groove
and I
ramp up the gain

riffed harmonies explode
disclose
less travelled roads
expose

the myth of certainty
yet still explore
the joy of being –

no longer wondering
he simply shares
his new discoveries

Malcolm Evison

[a recollection of my first discovering Ornette Coleman’s music some five decades ago!]
