About the Author

Michael Stephans is a well-known and respected jazz drummer who has performed and/or recorded with artists such as Bennie Maupin, Pharoah Sanders, Dave Liebman, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, Uri Caine, Alan Broadbent, John Patitucci, Scott Colley, Bob Dorough, and many others. He holds a doctorate in education and master's degrees in English and education. He teaches writing at Bloomsburg University is the author of Experiencing Jazz: A Listener's Companion (Scarecrow Press 2013).


Besides the massive amount of work Michael Stephans did commenting about Ornette's music, guiding the reader step by step through the mine field, there is under the surface a challenge.....that the reader/listener open their hearts and minds to the beauty, joy and honesty emanating from the man's art. Stephans' "message" goes beyond mere analysis into the spiritual realm, implying that if you allow yourself to enter Ornette's world you will be touched in ways beyond the pale. -- Dave Liebman, NEA Jazz Master Through his love and passion for Ornette and his music, Michael Stephans has put together one of the most comprehensive, thought provoking documents of this true universal human spirit... Experiencing Ornette Coleman will benefit everyone who embraces it. Bravo, Dr. Stephans! -- Joe Lovano, saxophonist, composer, Blue Note recording artist, Grammy winner, educator
