"living colour/geri allen question"


Ok, so a Pitchfork retrospective review of Vivid mentions an early Living Colour lineup.

"Over the next three years, the group served as a sandbox for a host of players (drummer Pheeroan akLaff, keyboardist Geri Allen, and guitarist/bassist Jerome Harris among them) who would go on to populate the credits of countless notable jazz records in the decades to come."

This is similar to a blurb on LC's Wikipedia page about the early lineup.

But was this *the* Geri Allen??!?!?!? The preeminent jazz pianist of the late-20th/early-21st century?

And if so, how did I not know this, lol!

It's not that crazy but at the same time, it sort of is. Anyone have any knowledge they can shed here? Are there any recordings or pics out there? My knowledge of LC is super basic aside from their full lps.
