about

“Undeniably introspective, this is nonetheless music with an extrovert muscularity and stark physicality that would make it hard to ignore in performance. “
BBC

“Filled with cantilevered rhythms, intertwining melodies and oblique harmonies, Harvesting Semblances and Affinities is one of the strongest albums of Coleman’s career and compelling proof of his continued importance in the development of contemporary jazz.”

“…he has quietly influenced generations of musicians; his ideas, once viewed as offbeat and inaccessible, have become crucial to the music’s contemporary language. Because of this his forthcoming CD, Harvesting Semblances and Affinities (Pi), sounds fresh and vital while also of a piece with its time and place.”
