Old & New Dreams

I just found this audio online of a Lecture/Workshop that the Old and New Dreams Band did at Harvard in 1980. I have so far only listened to the first part, a long talk by Charlie Haden on listening, and improvisation, but can't wait to listen to the rest of this. The clips are between 3-10 minutes long, but am putting them all together to save as an archive. This band consisted of members of Ornette's groups throughout the years, and they played all original compositions, plus Ornette's tunes. This was a good continuance of the Ornette acoustic quartet sound, as Ornette was playing more free funk/electric music with Primetime. Enjoy, and happy listening!

Part One
