ABOUT TIME, TOO

There is a hint of "get him before he goes" about
this but no one can say that he doesn't thoroughly deserve it. However, remarks such as "early 1960s acclaimed (sic) jazz musicians such as Charlie Parker and Miles Davis regarded Coleman's music as a direct affront to their years of training" suggest that it's probably not the best of ideas to let 19-year-old work experience trainees with a tenuous grasp of Wikipedia mores compose news articles for the BBC. Bird's views are particularly intriguing in view of the fact that he died in 1955; maybe Dominic Sandbrook and John Harris organised an impromptu ouija board session.
