Chicago-born saxophonist Steve Coleman has been a controversial figure since the emergence of the multi-idiomatic, free-funk M-Base movement he inspired in America in the late 1980s. Coleman's music through the past decade has seemed to suggest the steady maturing of a new Sun Ra, Anthony Braxton or George Russell for contemporary jazz - yet his struggle with form has also sidelined his reputation into an enthusiasts' tributary.
