Newport Jazz 2011: Ravi Coltrane Quartet, Live In Concert

August 8, 2011Hear a new set of repertoire played at Newport by the tenor saxophonist who blazes his own trail.

His bloodline alone makes him something of a prince of jazz. But his legendary father died when he was a toddler, and Ravi Coltrane blazed his own trail on the tenor saxophone; indeed, his ideas about composition and flow and tone sound most at home with his own generation of improvisers. His quartet has developed a new set of repertoire for a new album in the works. We get a good midterm progress report from the Harbor Stage at the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival.


Ravi Coltrane, tenor saxophone; Luis Perdomo, piano; Drew Gress, bass; E.J. Strickland, drums.
