Journey Into Jazz October 22, 2009

Tonight's Journey Into Jazz features saxophonist George Coleman. George may be an unknown to some of you, but he had a pretty high profile gig with the Miles Davis Quintet in 1963-64, prior to Wayne Shorter joining Miles. Tonight's selections represent a cross section of his career as a leader from 1977-1997. I hope you enjoy the show!
