I particularly like this jammed out version of Playing In The Band from day 28 by music veterans Max Creek. The vocals aren't that strong but the improvisation gets really out there!

"Harmolodics is a base of expanding the melody, the harmonic structure, the rhythm, and above all the free improvised structure of a composition beyond what they would be if they were just played as a regular 2-5-1 structure, or if they were played with the concept of a melody having a certain arrangement to know when to start and stop." (ORNETTE COLEMAN)To get a better sense, I turned to Joe Morris' book - Perpetual Frontier: The Properties of Free Music. Morris devotes a chapter to Coleman's Harmolodic methodology. Coincidentally, I had purchased this book just a few weeks prior to Ornette Coleman's passing.
