Review: Sax legend Coleman has been involved with notable bands throughout his remarkable career.
So when the saxophone giant christens an album The Quartet, those two simple words speak volumes about the esteem in which he holds the musicians that make up his band. Coleman’s latest disc more than backs up that compliment with a captivating session of bristling swing, lively interplay and deep communication.
