Alice COLTRANE - Universal Consciousness 1971 (REPOST)

Alice COLTRANE - Universal Consciousness 1971 (REPOST)


Regardless of one's own musical standpoints or of the particular cosmology of one's beliefs, this is Devotional music of the highest level, as it must be- majestic, serene, sublime, a richly-woven tapestry in sound; music of unsurpassable breadth and beauty to be heard as long as men with souls live.
Alice Coltrane died Friday of respiratory failure at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.
A pianist and organist, she was noted for her astral compositions and for bringing the harp onto the jazz bandstand.  She has performed on numerous recordings, including many on the Impulse! label.
A truly inspirational and dedicated figure, Alice spent much of the last 40 years, managing the archive and estate of her late husband, John Coltrane.
Alice's vision and artistry wil be greatly missed.
