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)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
