For this exclusive four-night run, saxophonist and composer Ravi Coltrane explores the music of his legendary parents John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane.

An artist whose career occupies a singular niche in modern jazz, Ravi Coltrane has established a sound and group concept that stands undeniably on its own, extending far beyond the shadow of his iconic name. Early experience in John Coltrane Quartet drummer Elvin Jones’ Jazz Machine band and maverick saxophonist Steve Coleman’s M-Base movement helped build Coltrane’s expansive aesthetic, leading to a procession of increasingly audacious recordings as a leader and collaboration with artists ranging from his mother, harpist and pianist Alice Coltrane, and cousin, iconoclastic producer, and electronic musician Flying Lotus, to pianist Chick Corea and trumpeters Terence Blanchard and Ralph Alessi.

Although Coltrane has delved into his father’s work on occasion, including serving as artistic director for SFJAZZ’s weeklong celebration of the 50th Anniversary of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme in 2014, this historic week of music will be the first time he has seriously re-examined the singular work of both his parents. With these concerts, Coltrane is furthering his family legacy by “embracing jazz’s past only as a means to communicate his own modern-day voice” (Okayplayer).
