      EVENT DETAILS
      Azar Lawrence


      Azar is on fire! Shortly after John Coltane's death in 1967, Azar Lawrence, at just 19 years old, was chosen by Elvin Jones (for 3.5 years) then McCoy Tyner (for 5 years) to fill the shoes of Mr.Coltrane. Azar recorded and played with Miles Davis on his Dark Magus album, wrote and recorded with Earth, Wind & Fire and Marvin Gaye to name a few! Azar's 2018 album, Elementals, garnered such reviews as "Azar Lawrence sounds more like John Coltrane than John Coltrane ever did" Chris May, London Times, a humbling review. Azar continues to roar with his 8 piece ensemble, The Azar Lawrence Experience, sizzling to the sound of Azar's original compositions from Elementals and Concord's reissued Bridge into the New Age & the 1976 Summer Solstice album! #ItsGoingToBeHot!
