The following text is from the concert's story page on NPR Music:

His bloodline alone makes him something of a prince of jazz. But his legendary father died when he was a toddler, and Ravi Coltrane blazed his own trail on the tenor saxophone; indeed, his ideas about composition and flow and tone sound most at home with his own generation of improvisers. His quartet has developed a new set of repertoire for a new album in the works. We get a good midterm progress report from the Harbor Stage at the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival.

Recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival on Sunday, August 7.

Available for free to NPR member stations for broadcast, up to 4 times in 3 years. If you're not an NPR member station, contact programservices@npr.org.
