Gil Coggins 1 of 2
O.H.Prince May 07, 05
No one could play a triplet loaded with more idea and purpose than Gil Coggins. His work on ballads is touching and masterful,and will serve as a tutorial on this subject for years to come. He played at Minton's and was the first choice of Miles, Sonny Rollins, Jackie McClean, and oh yeah, did some time with Lester Young also. Maybe enough will never be written, but his work on records is certainly an original and unique monument. O.H. Prince nyc5/7/05
