Jazz legend Ornette Coleman, the visionary saxophonist who pioneered “free jazz” and won a Pulitzer Prize in 2007, has died. Publicist Ken Weinstein says Coleman died on Thursday in Manhattan. He was 85. The Texas-born Coleman was only the second jazz artist to win the Pulitzer Prize in music when he was honored for his 2006 album “Sound Grammar.” Coleman is regarded as one of the greatest innovators in jazz history along with Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker. In the late 1950s, he originated “free jazz,” challenging the bebop establishment by abandoning the conventional song form and liberating musicians to freely improvise off of the melody rather than the underlying chord changes. Coleman broke down the barrier between leader and sidemen, giving his band members freedom to solo, interact and develop their ideas.

“Double Rainbow: The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim is a 1995 album by jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson, released on Verve Records. It contains Henderson’s rearrangement of music by Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.[2]

The album was originally intended to be a collaboration between Henderson and Jobim, but the plan was changed following Jobim’s death.[2]

Like his previous two albums for Verve Records, Double Rainbow received excellent reviews and relatively good sales for a jazz album in 1995. Reviewer Scott Yanow called the album “very accessible yet unpredictable”.[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD awarded the album three stars and described it as “essentially high-calibre light-jazz”.[3]”
