Alice Coltrane Gives Rare Performance in New Jersey

For the first time in nearly two decades, the legendary and visionary avant-jazz pianist Alice Coltrane will perform in the United States, leading her own quartet through a program comprising her songs as well as those of her late husband, John Coltrane. The quartet is rounded out by her son Ravi on tenor and soprano saxophone, Charlie Haden on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums; the latter two frequently collaborated with Coltrane in the ’70s.

The New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Alternate Routes series will host the first of three United States concerts-and only one on the East Coast-the Translinear Light Concert, at Prudential Hall on Saturday, October 22 at 5 p.m. Tickets range from $22 to $68 and are available by telephone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC, at the NJPAC box office at One Center Street in downtown Newark or by visiting the NJPAC Web site at
