Ornette Coleman

From the excellent music-blog http://destination-out.com/, I learn that Ornette Coleman’s current band is a three bass-affair. Two acoustic basses & one electric. Plus Denardo on drums. The live recordings from his Carnegie Hall performance — although taped from somewhere in the audience — make you believe that this band is even better than his early sixties quartets… Awesome.

(A friend of mine used to play in a Frisian hardcore-punk band with a line-up of three basses and a drummer — I still have a demo-tape. They were called Slaghuuske (sp?).)

Yes, having 3 basses makes sense.
