Image of Ravi Coltrane



Praised for his music’s “elusive beauty” (DownBeat), and for his “style informed by tradition but not encumbered by it” (Philadelphia City Paper), saxophonist Ravi Coltrane takes a bold step in his creative journey with Spirit Fiction, his Blue Note Records debut.

Spirit Fiction features two different band lineups, each with a unique ... Read more in Amazon's Ravi Coltrane Store

Editorial Reviews

Rather than springboard to early fame on the strength of his father's name, this young saxophonist spent years honing his skills as a sideman--most notably with Steve Coleman, who produced this debut. Coltrane's playing is quiet, reflective, and filled with a generous spirit; his mournful blowing on tunes like Horace Silver's "Peace" and his own "Narcine" allows room for his collaborators to shine. And backed by an excellent band consisting of Michael Cain (piano), Lonnie Plaxico (bass), and Jeff "Tain" Watts (drums), he shows he can also take on aggressive numbers like Joe Henderson's "Inner Urge" and his own "Mixed Media." Though still developing his own voice as a musician, Coltrane demonstrates that he is very much his own man. --Erik Pedersen

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant debut November 16, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a really nice CD with everything perfectly falling into place. The selection of the extraordinary musicians exactly matches the arrangements and the fine compositions. Ravi Coltrane's first CD as a leader is not so much a showpiece of his speed but of his taste and his capability as a composer, as an interpreter and as a leader of a musical collective. Ravi Coltrane doesn't adhere to the usual and boring hierarchy of solo-parts (the leader always first). Moreover, the CD creates a very individual musical atmosphere of a tense calmness which looses nothing of its charm even after repeated listenings.

5.0 out of 5 stars a breakthrough album September 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I will be brief since another reviewer has already covered this recording quite well:
If you have been previously underwhelmed by Ravi's work in the various groups he has played with as a sideman, get this. This is jazz music of the late 90s as it should be: well developed solos (rather than endless choruses of generic jazz information), ensemble improvisation which develops the themes from the compositions, and well conceived and crafted rhythmic bases / grooves in the rhythm section.

5.0 out of 5 stars honey flowing sax May 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
listening to ravi coltrane, the word of the day, especially on mixed media, is 'mellifluous'. and the special treat are the trade-offs between coltrane and ralph alessi on trumpet. steve coleman on alto blowing on the joe henderson cut, inner urge, is just more evidence for my little theory that henderson's music influenced more alto players than tenor players.

also michael cain on piano, lonnie plaxico on bass, jeff 'tain' watts dominating at moments on drums, and non intrusive percussion by ancient vibrations.

this recording has a jazz club feeling, a good introduction to how jazz sounds.
