About Mitchell Coleman Jr

Journeyman bassist Mitchell Coleman, Jr. is a longtime touring and session musician with a bent toward jazz fusion and R&B. Raised in Cuba, Alabama, Coleman first started playing music in his adolescence after receiving a bass as a gift from his mother. Inspired by the music of trumpeter Miles Davis, as well as such bass heroes as Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Slave's Mark Adams, and Jaco Pastorius, Coleman practiced religiously, and by his teens was regularly playing with local bands. After high school, he furthered his musical experience by enlisting in the United States Air Force band, during which time he toured with the Tops in Blue band and studied privately with bassists Rick Montalbano and George Sessum. After his discharge from the Air Force in 1990, Coleman relocated to Los Angeles where he quickly settled into the studio session and live performance jazz scenes, often collaborating with producers Cario Johnson and Herman Dawkins. In 2014, Coleman released his debut full-length solo album, Soul Searching, featuring co-production from keyboardist/vocalist Dawkins, as well as appearances by keyboardist Deron Johnson (Miles Davis, Stanley Clarke) and others. ~ Matt Collar
