A Monastic Trio (Bonus Tracks)

A Monastic Trio by Alice Coltrane
Released: Jan 1968
Label: Impulse! Records
The shadow of John Coltrane's death looms heavily over Alice Coltrane's first album. The first three tracks seem steeped in mourning and Pharoah Sander's sax work is spilling over with somber energy. By the time Rashied Ali steps up to the drums and Alice begins strumming her harp on "Lovely Sky Boat", the album has become more of a celebration.
