NEA Jazz Master and Memphis Music Hall of Fame inductee George Coleman is a seminal figure in jazz history. As part of the Miles Davis Quintet, he is featured on many landmark recordings, including Seven Steps to Heaven (1963), My Funny Valentine (1965) and Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage (1965).

Growing up in Memphis in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s alongside Booker Little, Harold Mabern, Frank Strozier, Jamil Nasser, Hank Crawford, Phineas Newborn Jr. and B.B. King, Coleman eventually moved to Chicago and then NYC.

Throughout his decades-long career he has toured and recorded with an exhaustive list of jazz legends, including Max Roach, Ahmad Jamal, Elvin Jones, Red Garland and Charles Mingus.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a true master when he comes to Regattabar!

"Everything about saxophonist George Coleman's 'The Quartet' is perfect...Its execution, from the meticulous production to the soloists' considered choices made within familiar song structures, is flawless."


“George played everything almost perfectly.”

–Miles Davis
