Like the pronouncements of a sage, legendary tenor saxophonist George Coleman's new recording A Master Speaks communicates both wisdom and wonder that bespeaks Coleman's half century in music. At 80-years-old, Coleman sounds, as ever, both vital and timeless. He's obviously invigorated by the deep sense of swing and classic hard-bop feel of the quartet he's assembled. A Master Speaks is Coleman's first release as a leader in nearly 20 years and first recording since the 2002 all-star live tribute album Four Generations of Miles. A man of few words, Coleman nonetheless conveys his thoughts with unparalleled eloquence when he speaks through his instrument, as profoundly evidenced by the nine tracks on A Master Speaks, his long overdue return to the studio.

The result is a fascinating, up-close-and-personal look into the world and ways of an expert storyteller’s creative process as he undertakes the writing of the much anticipated twentieth Jack Reacher novel, Make Me.

Skillfully weaving his own narrative with direct quotes from Abraham Lincoln and poignant excerpts from other Lincoln biographers, Joe Wheeler brings a refreshingly friendly rendition Lincoln's life, faith and courage. The stories, historical details, and powerful quotes on the pages of this book will leave a lasting impression on your heart, your mind, and your life.
