Ravi Coltrane: Universal Consciousness

Sponsored By: Wells Fargo

Venue: College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes


The Melodic Meditations of Alice Coltrane


Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane’s playing, described as “fiery at times, with equal capacity to fall back and luxuriate in gentle tones” (The Wall Street Journal), has earned him the reputation of a gifted bandleader and composer, trailblazer, and superlative artist in his own right. After more than two decades of forging his own path, Ravi mines his mother’s musical legacy in a loving tribute to Alice Coltrane—an incomparable keyboardist, harpist, and singer. In this celebratory evening, hear Ravi’s embrace and commemoration of her lasting influence.
