* [re: Crying without Tears]: This may or not be the title.
It was played at a concert I have a recording of, in New York on 6/20/04,
a review of which gives the names of several tunes, as written in the program.
But the reviewer also has "New York"as "Song World", "City Living"
as "City People" and "Lonely Woman" as "Those that Know Before it Happens",
which all might be accurate, as Ornette is known to change song titles
("Sleep Talk" was originally known as "Dream Talking",
and "Guadalupe" was "The Good Life", which was also an alternate title
of "School Work" ). In any case, this composition, as well as the ones
played on tracks 7 and the first part of track 10,
are staples of the quartet's repertoire.
Maybe they will be on and named, on the reported upcoming record by this group,
which Ornette said in a recent interview, was imminent.
3 minutes of the applause prior to the encore were edited out
so that the show fits on one 80 minute audio CD.
