This is saxophonist/bandleader Lakecia Benjamin’s third release, a truly masterwork, Pursuance: The Coltranes. Benjamin gathered an esteemed roster of jazz royalty on the date, which encompasses some 40 musicians in the credits. Recognizable names include three generations of jazz with Ron Carter, Gary Bartz, Regina Carter, Keyon Harold, Marcus Strickland, Brandee Younger, Dee Bridgewater, Meshell Ndgecello, Steve Wilson, Marc Cary, Jazzmeia Horn and Reggie Workman, who played with both John and Alice and proved invaluable in recruiting the stellar lineup and serving as a mentor on the project.
