Ravi Coltrane Quartet — Trio Beyond: Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield & Larry Goldings

At first listen, Ravi Coltrane’s thick, soulful and occasionally melancholic saxophone may sound as familiar as his name, but his bold compositions and daring improvisations have set him on a distinctive path apart from his father, John Coltrane. Trio Beyond was initially founded as a tribute to jazz-rock fusion group Lifetime. Moving past this framework, this collaboration between three jazz greats finds its own unique groove in original tunes and classic standards.

Approximate concert duration: 130 minutes including intermission
