JoAnne Brackeen & Ravi Coltrane Duo

Known as “the Picasso of Jazz Piano,” JoAnne Brackeen is consistently ranked by critics and jazz magazines as one of the best jazz pianists in the world, along with Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner, and Chick Corea. Her writing is remarkable for its creativity, stylistic range, emotional depth, and whimsical spirit. Her storied career does indeed invite parallels to Picasso; like the great visual artist, she has consistently defied convention, remaking herself and her art many times over. Her playing is virtuosic and wholly unpredictable, dense and richly detailed, rhythmically advanced and consistently, effortlessly swinging.
She now records regularly for the Arkadia label. Her newest quartet outing, Friday: Live at the Jazz Standard, features her working group with Ravi Coltrane on tenor sax, Ira Coleman on bass, and Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez on drums. This new, exciting release comes on the heels of the Grammy®-nominated Pink Elephant Magic (1999) and the solo piano tour de force Popsicle Illusion (2000). JoAnne's next studio session, Pepe's Favorite Cartoon, features Paquito D'Rivera and represents the next chapter in her continuing fascination with Latin music.



Joining JoAnne Brackeen is saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, son of saxophonist John Coltrane and pianist Alice Coltrane. Ravi, after appearing as a sideman with the likes of McCoy Tyner, Jack DeJohnette, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, and Flying Lotus (a.k.a. Steven Ellison, Ravi’s cousin), has released 6 albums as a leader since 1997. Ravi brings all of this rich experience to bear on the music of Spirit Fiction, his latest record and first with Blue Note Records. Spirit Fiction features two different band lineups, each with a unique expressive urgency. Several tracks feature Ravi’s long-term quartet with pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Drew Gress and drummer E.J. Strickland. Coltrane also enlisted a quintet featuring trumpeter Ralph Alessi, pianist Geri Allen, bassist James Genus and drummer Eric Harland. Having helped mark Blue Note’s 70th anniversary as a member of the Blue Note 7 (documented on the 2009 release Mosaic), Ravi is thrilled to join the Blue Note roster.



This will mark just the 2nd time these two acclaimed artists have played as a duo, and the very first time in New York.
