Born on Long Island, New York in 1965, Ravi is the second son of John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane. His father (who recorded the landmark Blue Train for Blue Note Records in 1957) died when Ravi was only two. Alice, a renowned composer and pianist, raised Ravi on the West Coast and proved a strong role model in her own right. Ravi had the honor of producing and playing on Alice Coltrane’s Translinear Light, released three years prior to her death in 2007.
