Sirone (1940-2009)

This year we lost another great musician, bassist and composer Norris Jones, better known as Sirone. He co-founded the Revolutionary Ensemble with Leroy Jenkins and Frank Clayton in 1971 (Jerome Cooper later replaced Clayton in the ensemble), one of the most innovative groups of its time. Here's Sirone's bass solo from "La Sorrella."
