I had dinner with Ornette a few years ago. This beautiful, humble man told us remarkable stories about his remarkable life. After we’d eaten our main course, we ordered more wine and some sorbet. Ornette poured his wine into his dessert and said: “Ever had red wine and raspberry sorbet?” I said: “Er, no.” And he said: “Neither have I!” I think that sums him up. He might be in his late 70s, but that was probably the sixth or seventh new thing he tried that day.
