Very very sad.  A HUGE loss.  I suggest the six volume collection of his first quartet to be a great place to start listening to his music.

Very, very sad indeed. Not that it came totally unexpected, but this one's really hard to take.
Es wollt ein meydlein grasen gan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Und do die roten röslein stan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Fick mich mehr, du hast dein ehr.
Kannstu nit, ich wills dich lern.
Fick mich, lieber Peter!

I own, among others,  the first four releases:  The Shape of Jazz to Come, Change of the Century, This is Our Music, Free Jazz. They are excellent and agree they are a great starting point for anyone interested in exploring Ornette's music.
"Music can inspire love, religious ecstasy, cathartic release, social bonding, and a glimpse of another dimension. A sense that there is another time, another space and another, better universe."

Another great one passes.  Walk in beauty, Ornette.
