Back after a 5-year absence—after blowing away the crowd during the concert-event Sax Appeal in 2008—brilliant American saxophonist Ravi Coltrane returns with a new album hailed by the experts, Spirit Fiction, his 1st for Blue Note! He’s considered one of the figures standard-bearers of today’s New York jazz scene, where he showcases his vast compositional talents. Clearly, John Coltrane’s son has established a career that transcends his famous surname. With Ravi Coltrane (saxophones), Adam Rogers (guitar), Dezron Douglas (bass) and Johnathan Blake (drums). Essential.
