Title: Turiya
Format: LP
Label: B.Free
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
Limited LP reissue of the 1982 cassette released by Avatar Book Institute. "If 1970s Journey in Satchidananda was a game changer for you then prepare yourself for this obscure 1982 cassette only release just out on CD. Alice Coltranes vocals are other worldly as if she made up her own language (in the form of Vedic Chants) its a spiritual message drowned in a sea of massive organ swirls and swells coupled to a string section that cant be described. These cassettes were originally sold at her Ashrams Avatar Book Institute. They are a total revelation for any Alice Coltrane fan and a missing link in her story." - Pat Thomas, author of Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.

Title: Carnegie Hall 71
Format: CD
Label: Hi Hat
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Alice Coltrane, live at Carnegie Hall, New York on February 21st, 1971. On Sunday, February 21st, 1971, a benefit was held in New Yorks Carnegie Hall for Swami Satchidandas Integral Yoga Institute, featuring Laura Nyro, the New Rascals, and Alice Coltranes All-Stars. The latter band was a remarkable coming-together of talent, with Lady Trane joined by legends such as Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, and Jimmy Garrison on stupendous form (with a little assistance from members of the Yoga Institute). The astounding performance of John Coltranes "Africa" on this set, finds them improvising thrillingly. Includes the entire WQXR-FM broadcast, digitally remastered and accompanied by background notes and images. Also features: Kumar Kramer (harmonium), Jimmy Garrison (bass), Cecil McBee (bass), Clifford Jarvis (drums), and Ed Blackwell (drums)." - Hi Hat.

Title: Journey In Satchidananda
Format: LP
Label: Impulse!
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
2017 repress. Exact repro. 180 gram virgin vinyl. "Originally issued in 1971. Recorded at the Coltrane home studio, Dix Hills, New York on November 8, 1970. Alice Coltrane (harp, piano); Pharoah Sanders (soprano saxophone, perc); Charlie Haden (bass); Rashied Ali (drums); Cecil McBee (bass); Vishnu Wood (oud); Tulsi (tamboura); Majid Shabazz (bells, tambourine). "Swamiji is the first example I have seen in recent years of Universal Love or God in action. He expresses an impersonal love, which encompasses thousands of people. Anyone listening to this selection should try to envision himself floating on an ocean of Satchidanandajis love, which is literally carrying countless devotees across the vicissitudes and stormy blasts of life to the other shore. Satchidananda means knowledge, existence, bliss." - Alice Coltrane.

"A great leap in jazz experimentation, this 1971 release successfully joins American free jazz with ethereal and spiritual Indian classical music.

The 6th and final track was recorded live at The Village Gate, and features some great interplay between Charlie Haden on bass and Vishnu Wood on oud. Original full color artwork."

Title: A Monastic Trio
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
2016 repress. "Born Alice McLeod into a musical Detroit family, Alice Coltrane began playing piano at age seven and later studied with Bud Powell in Paris. Upon returning to the States, she joined vibraphonist Terry Gibbs group and eventually shared a bill with the John Coltrane Quartet. In 1965 the two wed in Juárez, Mexico, and played alongside one another until her husbands last performance in May, 1967. A Monastic Trio, created in the year following her husbands passing, is Coltranes first recording as a band leader and features six original compositions. While Johns spirit can be felt throughout -- from the song titles (Ohnedaruth was his adopted Hindu name) to the personnel (Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali, and Pharaoh Sanders were frequent collaborators) -- the album showcases Alices immense talent for fusing spiritual free-jazz and new-age with classical, Eastern, post-bop and gospel. As the late Amiri Baraka writes, "I Want to See You" is a monastic piano concerto. With echoes of Europe... it has a solemnity and majesty to it.... Yes, monastic is the word. The piano broods in its earth imagination." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Universal Consciousness
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
2016 repress. "Originally released on Impulse! in 1971, Universal Consciousness is a major turning point in Alice Coltranes momentous career. While her previous albums pushed the limits of spiritual free-jazz and featured much of her late husbands band, Universal Consciousness expands the harpist / pianists compositional palette with organ and strings (working with Ornette Coleman). Oh Allah is the finest example of Coltranes new direction: tense violins dissolve into sublime organ solos and exquisite brushwork from long-time Mile Davis collaborator Jack DeJohnette. While the title track undulates with a fierce clamor, Hare Krishna showcases Coltranes uncanny ability for transcendent and slow-paced arrangements. In The Wires 100 Records That Set the World on Fire, David Toop writes, [Universal Consciousness] clearly connects to other dyspeptic jazz traditions -- the organ trio, the soloists with strings -- yet volleys them into outer space, ancient Egypt, the Ganges, the great beyond. The production is astounding, the quality of improvisation is riveting, the string arrangements are apocalyptic rather than saccharine, the balance of turbulence and calm a genuine dialectic that later mystic / exotic post-jazz copped out of pursuing. Her lack of constraint was dimly regarded by adherents of 70s jazz and its masculine orthodoxies, yet Alice deserved better credit for virtuosity, originality, and the sheer will power needed to realized her vision. This first-time vinyl reissue has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes." - Superior Viaduct.
