Newly Named NEA Jazz Master George Coleman Performing This Friday
(Published: June 25, 2014)

Saxophonist George Coleman, our featured leader performing this Friday, was just awarded the nation's highest music honor for jazz, the NEA Jazz Masters award.

The 2015 NEA Jazz Masters are recognized for their lifetime achievements and exceptional contributions to the advancement of jazz, the nation's highest honors in the folk and traditional arts and jazz fields. These artists, musicians, culture bearers, and advocates have dedicated their lives to their art-mastering the artistic skills needed and preserving the cultural traditions while also using their own creativity to push the boundaries of their respective art forms.

George Coleman, one of the world's most acclaimed saxophonists, leads a group of young firebrands, including his son George Coleman Jr. blazing on drums. The Memphis-born tenor sax giant recording seminal '60s dates with Miles Davis (My Funny Valentine and Seven Steps to Heaven) and Herbie Hancock (Maiden Voyage).

He's been rehearsing this new ensemble-featuring Alvin & Friends favorites Alex McCabe (alto sax) and Paul Odeh (piano)-for two years. Adam Cote, who George Jr. says is "superbad," is on bass. This is the premiere live performance of Coleman's first quintet ensemble in decades.
