    The Azar Lawrence Band

    At an early age, Azar Lawrence left his mark on the Jazz genre. Upon the recommendation of Benny Golson, Lawrence was hired by drummer Elvin Jones when he was just 18, and within a few short years, the prodigious young saxophonist was tapped by McCoy Tyner to fill the large shoes of collaborator John Coltrane. Throughout the '70's, Lawrence recorded with Tyner, Miles Davis, Freddy Hubbard and Woody Shaw. Like his contemporaries Herbie Hancock and Charles Lloyd, Lawrence forayed into pop music, recording with Earth Wind & Fire, Frank Zappa and Busta Rhymes. Since the early 2000's, the consummate artist has returned full force to his post-Bob Jazz roots. Lawrence's distinctive sound embodies a deep spirituality, which can be heard on Tyner's "Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit", and his own numerous recordings on Prestige. His current Oeuvre doesn't miss a beat, with frequent New York and Los Angeles shows that sparkle with virtuosity, and vivid ideas and textures. To the discerning listener, Lawrence's depth can only be attributed to one who has 'been there'. And 'there' he most definitely was.
