It is easy to hear why saxophonist and composer Lakecia Benjamin was named a 2020 Rising Star by the Downbeat Magazine Critics’ Poll. A collaborator with artists as diverse as Alicia Keys, Gregory Porter, Anita Baker, and Clark Terry, Benjamin has proven versatility and excellence in multiple fields, but it is her third album as bandleader, Pursuance: The Coltranes, that best spotlights her virtuosity. Pursuance is a sax-driven set of standards by both Alice and John Coltrane, featuring Benjamin and her band joined by a stellar multi-generational lineup of guest artists. Benjamin breathes new life into the Coltranes’ legacy, finding and reflecting the nuance and brilliance of these jazz titans.
