Azar Lawrence is an American jazz saxophonist, known for his contributions as sideman to McCoy Tyner, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Elvin Jones and Woody Shaw. Lawrence was the tenor saxophonist Tyner used following John Coltrane's death. His first solo album, Bridge into the New Age, was recorded in 1974 and released on the Prestige label.

Pressed at Quality Record Pressings (QRP) from lacquers cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tapes and housed in a one-pocket old-school style tip-on jacket, this is the first-ever vinyl reissue of Azar Lawrence’s masterful statement, Bridge Into The New Age. An essential addition to any jazz collection, this landmark recording proudly displays its ancestral roots as a forbearer of the current jazz revival as embodied by Kamasi Washington and the West Coast Get Down.
