George Coleman George Coleman would be a legendary figure in jazz for his crucial role in the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963-64, even if he'd never recorded a string of fine albums as a leader. Coleman fans have heard him most often in an acoustic setting with longtime Memphis running partner, pianist Harold Mabern. But this week at Jazz Standard, the sagacious tenor man explores his rare-groove side in the company of hard-hitting organist Mike LeDonne and fleet-fingered guitarist Russell Malone. “The dignity and class of George Coleman cannot be overemphasized..." (Michael G. Nastos, AllMusic.com)
