KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in the Dix Hills, Long Island, N.Y. of January 1970, for Alice Coltrane's "Turiya and Ramakrishna" from her "Ptah, the El Daoud" LP released on Impulse...
"Detroit born in 1937 as Alice McLeod, the classically trained jazz pianist and harpist became Alice Coltrane when she married John Coltrane in 1965. She performed live with her husband until his death in 1967 and I believe that after that she became very involved in the Hindu faith, eventually becoming a swamini. She died in 2007in Los Angeles. I had wrongly thought that she had only played harp and when I heard this a couple of years back I immediately fell under its spell. It was recorded in the basement of her home, with Ron Carter on bass and Ben Riley on Drums." KV
