Three nights at Smoke Jazz Club
George Coleman – sax
Jimmy Cobb– drums
David Hazeltine – piano
Ugonna Okegwo– bass
NEA Jazz Master George Coleman, a renowned performer and living legend, helps Smoke celebrate its 20th Anniversary in much the same way he did in 1999 for the opening weekend…with a superb quartet. In 2016, Coleman released his first recording as a leader in 18 years, A Master Speaks, to wide acclaim. The Guardian called it proof that “he’s still one of the most fluent and inventive tenor saxophonists around.” Joing Coleman for this special occasion are fellow NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Cobb, pianist David Hazeltine, and bassist Ugonna Okegwo.
