Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane is the son of jazz legend John Coltrane and pianist Alice Coltrane. While Ravi grew up in a musical family, he didn't start a career in jazz until his 20s. Now, with his latest CD, In Flux, some critics say Ravi Coltrane has created a sound all his own. He talks with NPR's Ed Gordon about his music.
