Dewey Redman – Ornette (Coleman) is missing you!

Text by Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi

Here is a YouTube video of an audio recording of the Ornette Coleman Quartet (with Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass and Ed Blackwell on drums), recorded in Belgrade, November 2, 1971. They are playing the song Who do you work for?
Unfortunately this is just an audio recording. But the music is so strong that you can imagine the players.

Dewey Redman I love Dewey Redman‘s sax playing. And it is a shame I have never had the chance to see him playing live. He is exceptional. And he has a great tone. Nobody sounds like him. No other tenor player could take his place in Ornette’s band. After more than ten months rehearsing with Ornette I started to understand why.
