Stephen Rush is a Professor of Music at the University of Michigan.
"Dr. Rush's thorough investigation of Ornette's theories and performances ... supports the idea that innovation is the logical extension of a tradition, not a radical departure from it. The parallels to the music of Mr. Coleman's youth and the historical events surrounding Black Americans' fight for civil rights is also quite compelling."-Branford Marsalis"Free Jazz, Harmolodics, and Ornette Coleman is one of the most important books on Coleman's philosophy and music. An essential read for anyone who wants to dig deep."-David Menestres, Burning Ambulance
