Ravi Coltrane is a critically acclaimed Grammy-nominated saxophonist, bandleader, composer, producer and founder of the independent record company, RKM Music. Since 1991, Ravi has diligently forged a prominent career as a live performer, recording artist and producer, as well as an impressive list of credits and accomplishments. Born in Long Island, New York in 1965, the second son of John and Alice Coltrane, Ravi was named after Indian sitar legend Ravi Shankar. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to the Los Angeles, where Ravi initially began playing clarinet and switched to saxophone in high school.Touring extensively in the U.S. and Europe, Ravi said, "I want to be involved with music that is truly honest - that's not trying to follow trends or fit into someone's idea about what jazz is. To me, I'm only trying to be a musician, and we honor the legacies of those who have gone before by just playing and doing our own thing. If our generation simply copycats the greats of the past, that's not real. It's important to be authentic and make music that means something now. It's exciting to be on the journey."
