Music has been a part of theatre since the dawn of the genre; from the origins of the Greek chorus to opera to Vaudeville to and to musical theatre. However, in recent years the line between the music and the theatre on Broadway has become more blurred as in unique and creative ways, we have seen performers serving as both actors and musicians.

On April 26 Jazz at the Spring invites you on a sonic joyride with Ornettiquette a stellar band formed by trumpeter Chris Pasin to honor the music of Ornette Coleman, one of the most powerful and creative innovators in the history of jazz. During his career Ornette Coleman, who in 2007 won the Pulitzer Prize for his album "Sound Grammar," overturned the structure of be-bop. Be-bop is a style of jazz which uses the architecture of an underlying tune from the American Songbook as the structure for wide ranging improvised solos. Coleman's idea was to explore melody and do away with the idea of a fixed series of chords. He didn't do away with harmony, but rather created melodies with amazing harmonic implications as the platform for improvisation. Coleman broke through style and structure to seek sound.
