Ornette Coleman - The Skies of America

From the collecton Ornette Coleman

Norman Meehan looks at Coleman's interest in writing for chamber groups and orchestras. This work reached an apotheosis with his orchestral tone poem The Skies of America. This programme examines that work and some of the chamber pieces that preceded it.
