georgieGeorge Coleman, bandleader, and composer, known chiefly for his Saxophone work with Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock in the 1960s will take over Jazz Standard this weekend accompanied by the likes of Mike LeDonne on the Hammond B3 and, guitarist Peter Bernstein. On drums is George Coleman Jr., and on percussion is Daniel Sadownick.

Shortly after this concert, Coleman was replaced by Wayne Shorter. He played with Lionel Hampton (1965–1966), also in 1965 and performed on Chet Baker’s The Prestige Sessions, with Kirk Lightsey, Herman Wright and Roy Brooks.[5] Charles Mingus (1977–1978), Shirley Scott (1972), Clark Terry, Horace Silver, Elvin Jones (1968), Ahmad Jamal (1994, 2000), and many others.
