Ravi Coltrane & Joe Lovano

Ravi Coltrane has always walked his own path. Never daunted by the pervasive influence and legend of his father, saxophone giant John Coltrane, he’s forged his own supple group approach and blue-flame cool tenor sax sound. But the 50th Anniversary of the elder Coltrane’s masterwork is cause to celebrate his father’s legacy and his enduring impact on the saxophonists who followed in his footsteps. Joining Ravi on this historic occasion is Joe Lovano, with whom he’s collaborated widely in the powerhouse triumvirate Saxophone Summit with Dave Liebman. A GRAMMY and multiple DownBeat poll winner, Lovano has been a relentless explorer throughout his career, embracing the mainstream while simultaneously pulling at the fringes of the avant garde. He has been invaluable band member with the SFJAZZ Collective, the Mel Lewis Orchestra and Paul Motian as well as a singular bandleader, leading over 25 wide-ranging albums. Backing Coltrane and Lovano is a rhythm section that can truly be described as a dream team of jazz heavyweights – the supreme pianist Geri Allen, renowned bassist Drew Gress, and the explosive drummer Ralph Peterson. Rather than feeling the weight of history, Ravi Coltrane knows that the ultimate expression of love is making the music his own. With Lovano and a band greater than the sum of its masterful parts, he’s ideally situated to seize this singular moment.
