1977 Chi Coltrane – Road To Tomorrow

Road To Tomorrow is an album by Chi Coltrane, released in 1977.

Chi Coltrane (born November 16, 1948) is an American singer and pianist. Coltrane was born in Racine, Wisconsin. Her mother was Canadian, her father a German violinist, and she grew up with six siblings. When she was twelve, she gave her first piano performance. In 1970, she started the funk and blues band Chicago Coltrane. Two years later, she signed a contract with Columbia Records and her debut album was released. The first single, “Thunder and Lightning”, was a hit, reaching No. 17 on the Billboard magazine chart. She enrolled in the Salter School of Music in Los Angeles, and the following year she released her second album, Let It Ride. This was followed by Greatest Hits and Best Of (both in 1975), and Road to Tomorrow (1977).
