George Coleman, Mike Stern, Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb: 4 Generations Of Miles
George Coleman's muscular tone and passionate manner exemplify the core of Miles Davis' art. Along with Mike Stern, Ron Carter and Jimmy Cobb, the tenor saxophonist performed a tribute to Davis earlier this year, on May 12th. Their approach is straight-ahead and right down the middle. It's a comfortable fit. One look at the song listing and you know right away what this is all about. These are the songs Davis played, and here they're interpreted the way Davis believed in living this music. The four artists are a team. They share Davis' message. Cobb, 73, worked with the trumpeter from 1958 to 1962. Coleman, 67, worked with Davis in 1962 and again from 1963 to 1965. Carter, 65, joined the trumpeter in 1963 and stayed on for five years. Stern, 49, had started out with Blood, Sweat & Tears. His tenure with Davis began in 1981 and extended for two years. Their working experience with Miles Davis appears to have been instrumental in guiding the direction each has taken since then.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
