Ravi Coltrane


Enjoying the momentum of his passionately cool Blue Note debut, Coltrane begins this eight night, three quartet run with a high-octane rhythm section: Billy Childs (Fender Rhodes), Lonnie Plaxico (bass), and Nikki Glaspie (drums). Should be intriguing to see how the increasingly self-defining saxophonist maintains the album’s group mind-meld spirit from combo to combo. Bill Stewart (drums), Christian McBride (bass), and David Virelles (piano) will pop up in later configurations.
