Spiritual free-jazz legacy. Alice Coltrane’s first solo album is a tribute to her husband John, who had passed away the previous year. She carries his spirit on through songs like “Ohnedaruth” which was his adopted Hindu name. She enlisted a trove of great artists to play on the record: from Pharoah Sanders and Rashied Ali to Jimmy Garrison and Ben Riley. The album flows with life and energy and is a must have for any true Jazz head.
