PHOTOS: Steve Coleman and Five Elements at Miller Symphony Hall (AJF2016)

Wednesday night of Allentown JazzFest was a night not to be missed.

Saxophone legend Steve Coleman brought his band to the Lehigh Valley for the first time ever, and it was a show that proved to be well worth the wait. Coleman and his band put on an unforgettable performance before a sold-out crowd in Miller Symphony Hall’s Rodale Room — one with masterful improvisation and frantic, yet structured, rhythms that kept the audience engaged for the duration of the band’s hour-and-35-minute set. At the end, Coleman and company received a standing ovation from the folks in attendance, who hung onto every lively note that they played.

Words are failing to describe this awesome night of music… so here are some photos instead!
