It's odd to call Coleman a "west coaster" when he was in fact from Texas--even within your article Hentoff's quote makes this very clear--a region that has produced many musicians. His early experience in R&B in that part of the world was deeply formative for his style. You say those who think of him as an "east coaster" are mistaken; you're making a similar mistake.
