Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman and Ravi Coltrane to Reconvene Saxophone Summit

Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman and Ravi Coltrane (pictured) will revive the Saxophone Summit with a new album and a series of concerts at New York’s Birdland from June 10th through 14th. The original Saxophone Summit, first assembled in the mid-1990s, included Lovano, Liebman and Michael Brecker, who passed away in 2007. That trio released the album Gathering of Spirits in 2004. With Ravi Coltrane (son of John and Alice Coltrane) taking the place of Brecker, the new configuration will release Seraphic Light on the Telarc label on June 3. The album is dedicated to Brecker. Stage time for the Birdland shows is 8:30 pm and 11:00 pm each night. General admission tickets are $30 and $40 for orchestra. Birdland is located at 315 W. 44th Street in New York. For more information or tickets call 212-581-3080 or go online to Birdland Jazz.
