Ravi Coltrane – Mad 6

Part of a package of albums previously issued only in Japan on the Eighty-Eights label, Mad 6 finds John Coltrane’s son Ravi in relaxed and ebullient mood on a two-day session recorded last May in New York. Coltrane’s sextet work through a varied programme which includes four originals as well as Coltrane senior’s “26-2” and “Fifth House”, Monk’s “‘Round Midnight” and “Ask Me Now”, Jimmy Heath’s “Ginger Bread Boy”, and Mingus’ “Self Portrait In Three Colors”.

Lively and accomplished, this LP is a good place to make Ravi Coltrane’s acquaintance.
