Bill Coleman

Biography

A mellow-toned golf swing trumpeter with a unique audio and a lyrical design, Costs Coleman was a consistent if under no circumstances particularly famous musician. In 1927, he visited NY with Cecil and Lloyd Scott’s music group, with whom he produced his documenting debut. He caused Luis Russell (1929-1932) and Charlie Johnson, and in 1933 journeyed to France with Lucky Millinder. Coleman documented with Fat Waller (1934) and used Teddy Hill’s Orchestra (1934-1935), but relocated to France for the very first time in 1935. While abroad, he recorded regularly as a innovator (really getting into his personal), with Willie Lewis’ Orchestra, and on times with Django Reinhardt. He ventured so far as Bombay, and spent 1938-1940 in Egypt with Herman Chittison. Time for NY, Coleman used Benny Carter, Teddy Wilson, Andy Kirk, Mary Lou Williams, and John Kirby during 1940-1945, and documented with Lester Youthful and Coleman Hawkins (both in 1943). Nevertheless, he preferred existence in European countries and, over time with organizations led by Sy Oliver and Billy Kyle, in 1948, Coleman relocated permanently back again to France, remaining active and documenting fairly regularly until his loss of life in 1981.
