Alice Coltrane Profiled

Source: Pitchfork.

Over a decade after Alice Coltrane passed away—or, as her website puts it, “left her physical form”—the musician’s followers continue to grow, via her time with John Coltrane’s late-period band, her pioneering solo work in the ’60s and ’70s, or the deeply spiritual music she recorded as Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda. For listeners who want to dig a bit deeper into her long journey, there are several excellent rarities to discover that give an alternate look at her musical quest for transcendence and transfiguration.
