George Coleman Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

After a rigorous apprenticeship in his native Memphis, including a stint with B.B. King, living legend George Coleman rose to jazz prominence for his solid, soulful playing with the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963–64 and his memorable performances on the classic Miles albums Seven Steps to Heaven (1963), My Funny Valentine (1964) and Four & More (1966). As a leader, Coleman has released such bracing albums as Amsterdam After Dark (1979), At Yoshi’s (1987), and most recently, the critically acclaimed A Master Speaks (2016). We’re pleased to welcome back this “Jazz Master” (as he was honored by the National Endowment for the Arts in April 2015) and his seasoned quartet, including fellow Memphian and longtime pianist Harold Mabern.
