Graham Haynes - With aspirations to push jazz beyond its traditional boundaries, Graham Haynes' first foray into electronic music came in 1979 upon meeting alto saxophonist Steve Coleman
Dave Holland - Holland formed his first working quintet in 1983, and over the next four years released Jumpin In, Seeds of Time, and Razors Edge, featuring alto saxophonist Steve Coleman, trumpeter Wheeler and trombonist Julian Priester.
Already at the beginning of the 1990s Clarinettist and composer Don Byron regarded Steve Coleman as an exceptional personality of American music history
For that purpose, he travelled to "'Ghana"' at the end of 1993 and came in contact with the Dagomba people whose traditional drum music uses very complex polyrhythm and a drum language that allows sophisticated speaking through music
Vijay Iyer - In 1994 he started working with Steve Coleman and George E. Lewis and became associated with the musicians' collective Asian Improv
In 1996 Coleman along with a group of 10 musicians as well as dancers and the group "Afrocuba de Matanzas" worked together for 12 days, performed at the Havana Jazz Festival, and recorded the CD "The Sign and The Seal"
