WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

No tenor saxophonist better epitomizes the robust muscularity of that heavyweight instrument of jazz expression than George Coleman. With brilliant technique and a deeply soulful tone firmly rooted in his hometown of Memphis, Coleman has performed with many of jazz' most legendary figures and influenced countless saxophonists during his half century in music. Growing up in Memphis' rich musical environment of the late 1940's alongside such notables as Booker Little and Hank Crawford, 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. Now at 68 years old, Coleman continues to be a prominent figure in jazz, recording and touring in the U.S. and internationally.
