In his later years, the jazz revolutionary became a respected elder statesman with the accompanying honors, including membership in the elite American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Grammy lifetime achievement award, even though none of his recordings ever won a Grammy. But early in his career, Coleman’s unconventional playing led him to be rejected by both the public and his fellow musicians who would walk off the stage when he showed up at jam sessions. One bandleader paid him not to solo; others simply fired him. Coleman was told he played out-of-tune and didn’t know the basics of jazz improvisation.

Sato attended Cambrian Grammar School and graduated from Los Gatos High School in 1953. I was 6 and had just started first grade. We did have school, so it was a fun time for me. My grandmother, mom, dad and two sisters and I all lived in one room. When we first got there, there were no partitions for toilets and showers, so it must have been terrible for older girls. And it must have been bad for my parents, but as a kid you don’t make a big deal about it. It was hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and there were a lot of dust storms.
