Like the pronouncements of a sage, legendary tenor saxophonist George Coleman's new recording A Master Speaks communicates both wisdom and wonder that bespeaks Coleman's half century in music. At 80-years-old, Coleman sounds, as ever, both vital and timeless. He's obviously invigorated by the deep sense of swing and classic hard-bop feel of the quartet he's assembled. A Master Speaks is Coleman's first release as a leader in nearly 20 years and first recording since the 2002 all-star live tribute album Four Generations of Miles. A man of few words, Coleman nonetheless conveys his thoughts with unparalleled eloquence when he speaks through his instrument, as profoundly evidenced by the nine tracks on A Master Speaks, his long overdue return to the studio.
