**BACK IN STOCK - CHECK EXCEL LIST ABOVE FOR FULL SUPERIOR VIADUCT LISTING**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’s 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 husband’s last performance in May, 1967.
A Monastic Trio, created in the year following her husband’s
passing, is Coltrane’s first recording as a band leader
and features six original compositions. While John’s spirit
can be felt throughout—from the song titles (“Ohnedaruth”
was his adopted Hindu name) to the personnel (Jimmy Garrison,
Rashied Ali, and Pharoah Sanders were frequent collaborators)—
the album showcases Alice’s 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.”

Tracks:

1. Ohnedaruth
2. Gospel Trane
3. I Want to See You
4. Lovely Sky Boat
5. Oceanic Beloved
6. Atomic Peace
