Tenor sax man George Coleman, 80, doesn't like the studio. He's made that perfectly clear. The last time he was even in a studio was 14 years ago in 2002 for the all-star tribute CD 'Four Generations of Miles.' His last album as a leader was 19 years ago in 1997 ('I Could Write A Book: The Music of Richard Rodgers'). This is why the release of 'A Master Speaks' is such big jazz news.
According to Andrea Torres of The Miami Herald, Major League Baseball's best-hitting catcher, Mike Piazza, made his debut in Richard Rodgers and George Balanchine's Slaughter on Tenth Avenue with Miami City Ballet on Friday night.
