Jazz legend Ornette Coleman collapsed from heat stroke onstage during a performance Sunday at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., and is now in a local hospital under doctor's supervision.

After collapsing, the 77-year-old saxophonist was rushed to a nearby medical tent and given intravenous fluids, according to a Bonnaroo spokesperson. Coleman was said to be lucid and insistent that he had no prior symptoms before he collapsed.

Coleman is now resting at the local Coffey County Hospital. His next scheduled concert is July 6 in Kongsberg, Norway.
