More Info:

Performed by John Coltrane's spiritual widow Alice is a selection of very special mantras, combined with chanting and two haunting instrumentals. These seven tracks are all based in Indian themes. All of them are exceptionally and accurately done, especially the mantras/kirtans which are true to their Hindu origin, the instrumentals have more of an improvisational, free-form feel. This is practically not a jazz record, but Coltrane's take on spiritualization's of jazz means. This album features both a string quartet on several tracks and a vocal choir on several others. This album works equally well either as background sound during meditation or for pleasurable listening.
