Best work by Ornette Coleman sidemen

Ornette and Charles Tyler jammed together in the mid-60s, so it would stand to reason that he and Ayler did as well.

Yeah, I suppose so...and I wonder f Ornette and Donald Ayler worked on trumpet together. Or Alan Shorter? Or anybody of the time on violin? Or did Ornette work those things out on his own and then kept them to himself?

Did Ornette & Ayler ever practice/jam together? I could not see that not ever happening.

They reportedly jammed together in 1963 with Fred Lyman and others. http://www.ayler.co.uk/html/unreleased.html

Interesting...thanks.

Ornette and Max?  There was that early violent reaction by Max--so much so that he hit Ornette (or at least so the story goes).

Quite a few people went over to Coleman's to play during his 'retirement period'.

Bill Dixon was instrumental in getting him a trumpet and proper mouthpiece, and showed him some things on the horn.
