Azar Lawrence Quintet

Azar Lawrence was born 1952 in Los Angeles and by the age of 21 had worked with Ike & Tina Turner, War, and Charles Wright’s Watts 103rd Street Band (“Express Yourself”). He joined drum- mer Elvin Jones for two years, and for the next eight years moved between Jones’ group and that of McCoy Tyner. Azar then briefly joined the Miles Davis band, appearing on the live album Dark Magus (recorded 3/30/1974); he also recorded with Roberta Flack and Marvin Gaye, appearing on Gaye’s Here My Dear. He released three albums as a leader, and had his songs recorded by Stanley Turrentine and Earth Wind & Fire, among others. In 2010, Azar Lawrence released Mystic Journey (Furthermore Recordings), his first album in nearly 30 years.
