While accompanying Charles Mingus (1973-78) and Gil Evans (1974-84),
tenor saxophonist George Adams,
formed a quartet with pianist Don Pullen that debuted on Jazz A Confronto (march 1975), credited to Pullen.
That quartet reached its zenith with Suite For Swingers (july 1976), containing Adams' 22-minute Suite For Swingers and the 15-minute Melodic Rhapsody.
After indulging in
the lightweight fusion jazz of Imani's Dance on Sound Suggestions (may 1979), with trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, tenorist Heinz Sauer, pianist Richie Beirach and bassist Dave Holland,
and the introverted Yamani's Passion on the tenor-drums duet Hand To Hand (february 1980),
Adams penned two of his best, Mingus Metamorphosis and City Gates, on the quartet's City Gates (march 1983),
besides Nature's Children on Lifeline (april 1981).
