It took nearly 20 years for tenor saxophonist George Coleman to bring his working quartet (featuring the late pianist Harold Mabern, in one of his final recording sessions, along with bassist John Webber and drummer Joe Farnsworth) into the studio. That wait time is the only real complaint about The Quartet. It’s as straight-ahead an album as it gets, created by an octogenarian who—despite being an NEA Jazz Master—remains undervalued in his greatness
