Anyone else lizzening to the new Ecstatic Music Of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda comp?
For some reason I thought this would be a bit emotionally flatter and new age than my fav 70s albums with the strings (World Galaxy & Universal Consciousness) but nope! The underlying dead happy/dead sad thing is still there. It is super heavy. When she stamps on the organ bass pedals it is the best. What u think
Also recently noticed that this album exists
which is almost her remixing John Coltrane. Got a copy but I haven’t had a proper listen yet. It is a shame Impulse doesn’t bother reissuing stuff that wasn’t well received at the time like that (see also Ornette At 12, the first album he replaced an adult drummer with his son [who was 12!!!])
Please discuss Alice Coltrane below thanks. How’s about when they are manipulating the tape of the string section in World Galaxy is it not the best
