If you’re walking around with the name of a God, your last name is Coltrane and your first name is not John Coltrane, and you’re going to play the tenor saxophone, same as your old man, people are going to want to know what that’s all about.” Ravi Coltrane Interview. JazzTimes 2010

According to Coltrane, “The title, Spirit Fiction is an abstract turn of phrase that … ultimately refers to the open ended idea of simply embracing imagination. Coltrane vaults himself to a new level of compositional and improvisational excellence with a record that’s a complete, seamless musical statement. Despite using a blend of two separate bands, as well as a guest appearance by fellow tenorist Joe Lovano (who also co-produced the record), there is a textural unity to the music that just feels whole.


Album Reviews:
AllMusic: This is a fully realized musical statement that stands solidly from beginning to end.

All About Jazz: With Spirit Fiction, Coltrane has attained new level of personal musical accomplishment. The name Coltrane may evoke instant nostalgia for a legend, but today it also means something else.
