About Ravi Coltrane
Born to jazz legends John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane, Ravi was raised in Los Angeles where his family moved after his father’s death in 1967. His mother, Alice Coltrane, was a significant influence on Ravi and it was he who encouraged Alice to return to the recording studio after a long absence. Subsequently, Ravi produced and played on Alice Coltrane’s powerful album Translinear Light (2004).
In the course of over two decades, Ravi’s work as a composer, bandleader and saxophonist have earned him critical acclaim as well as three Grammy nominations. He has released six albums as a leader, and also founded a prominent independent jazz record label, RKM.
Ravi Shankar has performed and recorded with major artists such as Elvin Jones, Terence Blanchard, Kenny Baron, Steve Coleman, McCoy Tyner, Jack DeJohnette, Matt Garrison, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Geri Allen, Joanne Brackeem, The Blue Note 7, and even his namesake Ravi Shankar.
