H (who’s having a day off today) goes out and I finish the Fairies. It still takes all morning and a bit of the afternoon. Meh.
In the evening to Ornette Coleman at the RFH – only two basses this time, though with a third bass stack and the presence of Bill Frisell, which is something of a plus. Also The Master Musicians of Joujouka (who are also the support) and a woman who might be Patti Smith (who was on yesterday), though if it is Patti Smith she’s started dying her hair again.
It’s amazing that people can be unpleasantly surprised by Ornette Coleman. I mean, that’s what he does. It’s what he’s always done.
Afterwards have late fish and chips and watch TV.
