In All Languages – The Music Of Ornette Coleman
Martin Speake – alto saxophone
Alyson Cawley – tenor saxophone
Calum Gourlay – double bass
Shane Forbes – drums
Over the past few years Alyson Cawley and Martin Speake have been collaborating closely together on diverse projects ranging from exploring South Indian music, to the music of Charlie Parker, to free improvisation. Throughout the lockdown period of 2020 two new projects have arisen inspired by a love of Ornette Coleman and Lennie Tristano.
Ornette Coleman’s melodies are a perfect vehicle for Alyson and Martin to improvise freely together and the band that has formed with the addition of Calum Gourlay and Shane Forbes provides a highly spontaneous and conversational environment for these creative musicians to collectively tell their own story.
Many of Ornette’s melodies have become standards being played by musicians all over the world, such as Lonely Women, Ramblin’, and Law Years. But there are many undiscovered gems that are not played as often or at all by others. We have over 70 tunes to draw on already and the repertoire is growing.
This music is endless. Ornette is the supreme melodist.
