WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Growing up in Memphis' rich musical environment of the late 1940's 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' ground breaking 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 - and made a significant contribution to jazz history.
