I took it on my iPhone. It was a great set.  

The iPhones do have some great cameras.

Yes. He needed help getting to the stage, but he can still blow.

Man, why do you keep insisting this is George Coleman on your photos? It's clearly not him. Here is a video of Coleman band in 1981:

 Well man, George is the guy with the red necktie. This is Bobby Watson on alto sax.

Nice joke from your side

Yes, correct, George is gentlemen with the red tie in the video. This is what I was saying - here is a video of George Coleman in 1981. There are eight people in the octet, not all of them are George Coleman. The guy in your pictures is most definitely not George Coleman. I am not sure who that is - this would be a good trivia question. My guess it's Wilton 'Bogey' Gaynair:

My first reaction seeing that photo and where it was taken was ‘Bogey’ Gaynair too.

Regarding George Coleman, this is an excellent album that I think was not mentioned:

For jazzcorner, yes, this George Coleman hugging Idris Muhammad on the cover.

Coleman is great on a recent quartet album led by Emmet Cohen (CDs at Cohen's site).

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, the gig was cancelled. We're playing (with Joe Farnsworth) tonight at the Django and Saturday at the Side Door in CT.

Hopefully Smoke will be rebooked.
