All four images that grace the cover of the LP’s were taken at the Caravan of Dreams performing arts complex in Fort Worth, Texas, during the making of the Shirley Clarke film, “Ornette: Made In America.” The film captures Ornette’s triumphant return to his hometown of Fort Worth in 1983, when he was given the keys to the city and his symphony, “Skies of America,” was performed. During this period, Ornette spent time with fellow honoree, writer William Burroughs; years later, Ornette would work with composer Howard Shore on the 1991 movie soundtrack for Burroughs’ classic book, “The Naked Lunch.”
Original Memorial Program – The Ornette Coleman Memorial on June 25, 2016 at The Riverside Church, New York City, was truly a historic event. For the occasion, a very special tribute program was created, featuring a cover photo of Ornette in one of his iconic multi-colored suits, holding his white saxophone. The inside cover shows Ornette’s hand written “Harmolodic Theory,” from his personal manuscript book. The centerfold is a collage of many of Ornette’s more than 60 albums. The historic images include the original Quartet of Ornette, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins, among others.
