Details

Uniquely among the great American jazz trumpeters, Bill Coleman (1904-1981) spent the major part of his career in Paris. Two generously filled CDs present the cream of Bill Coleman’s artistry from his remarkable first sessions under his own name in 1936 and his classic dates with Fats Waller, through 24 years of memorable performances to the late 50s, still playing with the same relaxed strength and creative ingenuity which marked his entire career. The concluding Colemanology provides the perfect coda to a collection celebrating Bill Coleman; a trumpeter who combined grace and beauty with inspiration for every chorus of his life. We shall not hear his like again.
