5.0 out of 5 stars A Grand Master re-invents standards What jazz is about... November 17, 2003
By NDBx
Format:Audio CD
George Coleman is one of the overlooked grand masters of the saxophone. He shone brightly on those early sixties recordings with Miles Davis often stealing the limelight and he hasn't slowed any since.
Rarely do you find saxophonists that can play so well on tenor, alto and soprano saxophone without losing something, here is one cat that play 'em all.
At first you would see the song titles and say... these all have been done so often...another collection of standards. Don't take a pass on this one. Mr. Coleman approaches this with such a fresh perspective. He improvises so well. He turns these pieces this way and that creating a prism effect and in so doing presenting them as the superb vehicles for improvisation that they are.
Surprising is how good Mr. Coleman is on soprano. His tenor work is, as always, excellent. His alto work may start a whole new career for him.
Mr. Coleman is well accompanied here with Ray Drummond on Bass, Harold Mabern on piano and the late great Billy Higgins on drums.
These guys swing, they cook and they keep the fresh spirit of jazz alive.
Mr. Coleman plays like a man a quarter of his age on this. He could teach the young cats a few new tricks.
This one bears repeated playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Swinging Jazz Quartet Of The Contemporary Scene! November 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD
WOWEEE!!! Well my dad loaned my this CD after hearing George Coleman on Miles Davis's Seven Steps to Heaven and it just blew me away. These people:Coleman,Harold Mabern on piano,Ray Drummond on the bass and the exciting drummer Billy Higgins smoke,burn and swing from number to number here. There are lenghy treatments of standards such as "Lush Life" and "My Romance" that give...well this powerhouse acoustic trio something people who aren't exactly into jazz something even they might not expect:HEAVY ELECTRICITY! Considering this is a fairly early all digital acoustic jazz recording the sound and incredible and you feel your actually moving in and around the musicians as they do their thing. While staying true to the themes of these tunes the interpretations are very radically improvised and the strong level of excitment energizes that sensability as well. Even though it's very brief "The Sheik Of Araby" is baught right to life with some inspired,lyrical soloing and Billy Higgins really giving the rhythm a life almost outside the quartet setting. "Conrad","You Mean So Much To Me" and "Old Folks" are originals that are so heavily strong and vibrant they actually sound like reinvented standards as well. The tone of Coleman's sax on this cuts is so lively and strong themselves and can actually work itself into the many kinds of tonal qualities he brings to his playing. Sometimes he's right on fire,other times breathy and sometimes quietly in between both. Lovers of "hot music",or "swinging jazz" as some call it will feel right at home here and the music and the tunes themselves just sweep you right up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous recording by an often overlooked talent March 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD
George Coleman has never received the kind of recognition his talent merits. Over a career that spans over six decades, George has played with everyone from B.B. King to Miles Davis, and his albums as a leader show what he's capable of when playing exactly what he wants, without the constraints that come with being a supporting player in someone else's band.

As the title indicates, George plays, in addition to his usual tenor sax, alto and soprano on this album, as well, and just kills it no matter which one he chooses. You're going to be hard-pressed to find a better band--longtime friend and compatriot Harold Mabern on piano; the always-solid Ray Drummond on bass; and, finally, one of the greatest drummers who ever lived (and another genius who never got the acclaim he probably should have, Mr. Billy Higgins on drums.

The program here is nothing revolutionary--a set of standards ranging from "Lush Life" to "My Romance"--but oh, what these four gentlemen can do with such fine, familiar material, bringing new aspects and shadings to these well-worn tunes and making them come alive all over again. There may be a better set of performances of standards out there, but I have yet to hear it.

On a personal note, this album will always hold a special place in my heart, as it was one of the CDs we played in the delivery room when our oldest child was born--our daughter will be 18 next month. I remember at one point, one of the doctors asking, "What are we listening to? This is nice." My wife, on the other hand, was somewhat preoccupied.

If you love beautiful jazz that's well-played, pick up "My Horns of Plenty" at the earliest opportunity. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post bop at its best. June 15, 2013
By Bohmfan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a band! I nearly freaked when I first heard this at a friend's home. George Coleman on tenor, soprano & alto, Harold Maburn on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, the late Billy Higgins on drums. It doesn't get better than this. Straight ahead jazz.
