Absolutely thrilled an honored to be musical director for the John Coltrane Raga Tribute presented by Pioneer Works and Brooklyn Raga Massive. It’s been a longtime dream of mine to honor this musical hero and inspiration to all the great artists involved. Don’t miss this great event!

Brooklyn Raga Massive

John Coltrane rem11922941_1050391181638374_1056334580277308470_oains a pivotal force in the styles of modal jazz, avant-garde jazz, hard-bop and world music. With records like “Om” and songs like “India,” Coltrane and his legacy have led a movement towards bringing Indian music influences, especially Raga, closer to the world of Jazz music.

Brooklyn Raga Massive pays homage to this musical genius, brilliant composer, cornerstone of American Jazz and huge influence on the members of their Indian music collective. On Coltrane’s birthday September 23rd, Brooklyn Raga Massive will be delving into the Coltrane legacy with song selections spanning the works of Alice Coltrane, Pharaoh Sanders & the colossus John Coltrane.
