For the first installment of BIMHUIS Radio on All About Jazz we present the full recording of the recent concert by Ralph Alessi & This Against That featuring Ravi Coltrane held at BIMHUIS on 18 May 2018.
Describing Ralph Alessi's trumpet playing is like describing his compositions: clear of sound and structure and simultaneously full of ingenuity and expertise. This gives him room for adventure and innovation and that's what This Against That is all about. In this all-star group Alessi plays alongside Ravi Coltrane, a successful band leader in his own right who has fully embraced the heritage of his parents John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane.
Personnel: Ralph Alessi: trumpet; Andy Milne: piano; John Hébert: bass; Mark Ferber: drums; Ravi Coltrane: tenor saxophone.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
