Dewey Redman (1931-2006) and John Coltrane (1926-1967) are giants in jazz history. Their sons Joshua Redman (born 1969) and Ravi Coltrane (born 1965) are among the most prominent tenors playing today. Has there ever been another time in jazz history when two of the most admired players are children of jazz masters? And it is even more extraordinary that both sets of fathers and sons all are great tenor players. Joshua Redman and Ravi Coltrane in this hour of Jazz at 100 Today!
