Ravi Coltrane Live At The Village Vanguard: Listen Tonight Online at NPR Music
(Published: November 19, 2008)
He bears the name of jazz royalty, and he's spent many hours curating, archiving and producing his parents' recordings. But when he picks up his own saxophones, Ravi Coltrane blows an original and distinctly modern strain of jazz, distilling but never seeking to imitate his family's adventurous improvising spirits. Now one of today's top saxophonists, Coltrane takes his own quartet into the same Manhattan venue where his father John Coltrane so famously held court: The Village Vanguard.
Hear the Ravi Coltrane quartet perform live from the Vanguard at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 19, broadcast live on air by WBGO and live online at www.NPRmusic.org.
