WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The George Coleman Quartet includes George Coleman (tenor sax), Anthony Wonsey (piano), Jerome Derro (bass) and Joe Farnsworth (drums). Growing up in Memphis' rich musical environment of the late 1940s (alongside such notables as Booker Little and Hank Crawford), tenor saxophonist George Coleman was invited to tour with B.B. King at the age of 17. He went on to perform with jazz legends Max Roach, Charles Mingus, Chet Baker, Ahmad Jamal, and most notably in Miles Davis' groundbreaking quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. The group recorded four classic albums - Seven Steps to Heaven, My Funny Valentine, Four and Miles Davis in Europe - while making a significant contribution to jazz history. Additional Ticket Information: At the tables, there is a $10.00 food/drink minimum (per person) in addition to the music charge. At the bar, the music charge includes a complimentary drink, with no additional minimum.
