About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1974. Vintage photograph of jazz saxophonist, trumpeter, and composer Ornette Coleman, along with bassist Charlie Haden in the background, performing at Artist House in 1974. Stamp of photographer Raymond Ross on the verso.

Coleman spent six years living and working at 131 Prince Street in New York, between 1968 and 1974. Acquired by Coleman in April, 1978, the space was actually composed of two lofts, located on the ground floor and third floors of the building. The lofts were multipurpose, with the first floor serving as a rehearsal space and occasional performance venue, and living quarters for Coleman on the third floor. The ground floor was renovated sometime in the second half of 1971, and the following year the space began to offer more formal advertised concerts and art exhibitions, coming to be known as Artist House in the spring of 1972. Coleman would lose the first floor in 1974, following a legal conflict involving noise complaints from residents in the area, and would sell the third floor shortly thereafter.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
