After succesful shows at L'envers and La Brique, four of Montreal's hottest improvisers are back playing more music they love, by Ornette Coleman. The band got its start several years ago in the city's underground loft scene playing at a celebration of Coleman's birthday.The on-stage chemistry of the four players has brought three generations of musicians together to explore the huge body of work that American master-musician Ornette Coleman is still building now, 55 years after his first released recordings.
