The Ravi Coltrane Quartet
Saturday nights in Philadelphia usually brings big name to to town for the Jazz community. This weekend was no exception. Ravi Coltrane, the son of legendary saxophonist John Coltrane, came into town to bring some warmth to a city full of Brotherly Love. He brought along some friends that are proven in their own right. On guitar we have guitarist Adam Rogers, Dezron Douglas on bass, and E.J. Strickland on the drum kit. These guys brought their A game to town with a mixture of ballads such as Lush Life to the classic fan choice of the evening, Giant Steps. To be in a family of royalty with the last name of Coltrane, Ravi is a very humble individual. Talking with all the musicians and hanging around to also enjoy the jam session that followed his show. It’s always a good thing when you can see musicians of all walks of life sharing and having fun.
