Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane (pictured), who signed to Blue Note in August 2010, makes his debut for the label with Spirit Fiction, released in the UK on Monday 18 June. Produced by Joe Lovano, with whom Coltrane plays alongside Dave Liebman in the Saxophone Summit, this is his first album since 2009’s Blending Times and features two distinct line-ups: his longstanding quartet with pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Drew Gress and drummer EJ Strickland, and the quintet he used on his second album, The Round Box, released in 2000, and featuring trumpeter Ralph Alessi, pianist Geri Allen, bassist James Genus and drummer Eric Harland.
