    Even if he’d never recorded a string of fine albums as a leader, George Coleman would be a revered name in jazz for his crucial role in the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963-64 and his soulful, articulate playing on Miles’ Columbia albums Seven Steps to Heaven (1963), My Funny Valentine (1964) and Four & More (1966). Last year, Coleman brought his grooving organ band to our stage; this week, he returns to the classic acoustic jazz format. The group will welcome a very special guest in the person of tenorist Eric Alexander, whose 2014 Highnote album Chicago Fire was lauded as “one of the most vital” of his 30- plus releases by Jeff Tamarkin at JazzTimes.com: “His blowing is extraordinarily articulate and ecstatic, his tone bright and muscular, leadership and inspiration flowing nonstop.” George Coleman Sr. – tenor saxophone Eric Alexander – tenor saxophone Harold Mabern – piano John Webber – bass George Coleman Jr. – drums
