 Miss -trane?   Image result for azar lawrence Don't miss Azar!" -

 (Culver City, CA ---) On Sunday, March 26th at 2 p.m., The Mayme A. Clayton Library & Museum, located at 4130 Overland Avenue in Culver City, will present another of the late Mimi Melnick's Double M Jazz Salons.
  • The much-anticipated concert will feature prolific saxophonist, composer and bandleader, Azar Lawrence. An edgy, risk-taking, world world-class ensemble, The Azar Lawrence Quartet includes, pianist Theo Saunders; Henry Franklin, bass and Tony Austin, drums. During unencumbered, spontaneous forays, the artists will showcase original compositions that challenge the imagination while offering unique renditions of classic standards. From downbeat to cadenza, unsuspecting listeners are ushered on a spiritual odyssey. Azar reveals, “As we cross the bridge into the
    New Age, the music of the spheres guides us.” Steeped in timeless traditions, Azar will blend the brew while praising the ancestors. Delving deeply into his vast repertoire, the titan of the tenor will stoke the fire and serenade lovers as he abruptly turns balladeer. His horn of plenty remains poised for either occasion.
    .
    A native
    Angeleno, Mr. Lawrence has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad, performing with McCoy Tyner, Alphonse Mouzon, Horace Tapscott, Nolan Shaheed, Harold Land, Jr., Roy McCurdy, Kevin Toney, William Henderson, Nate Morgan, Tootie Heath, James Leary, Bobby West, Phil Ranelin, Dwight Trible, Fritz Wise, Michael Hunter, Rashied Ali, Larry Gales, Miles Davis, Albert Dailey, Onaje Murray, Sunship Theus, Ron Carter, Gene Harris, Woody Shaw, George Cables, Elvin Jones, Herbie Baker, Earth, Wind & Fire, Richard Grant, and scores of others.
