Subject: Harmolodics
Category: General Questions
From: Jazz Online (sf,ca)

Can you give a succinct definition of harmolodics? If you use it in your playing or composing, how do you apply it?

Pat’s Answer:

the only person i know who could give you a definition of what "harmolodics" means would be ornette coleman and i guarantee it would be fascinating but not succinct. if you ever get the chance to ask him, be sure to bring your best thinking cap to decipher the answer. i also recommend that you view any critic or musician who uses this term as if they know what they're talking about with extreme suspicion. (only exceptions: don cherry and charlie haden)
