Born: March 9, 1930 Fort Worth, Texas, United States.
Ornette Coleman is an American saxophonist and composer. He was one of the major innovators of the free jazz movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
Coleman was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, where he began performing R&B and bebop initially on tenor saxophone. He later switched to alto, which has remained his primary instrument. Coleman's timbre is easily recognized: his keening, crying sound draws heavily on blues music. His album Sound Grammar received the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for music.
