Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from Jimmy Garrison and drums by either Ben Riley or Rashied Ali. Pharoah Sanders sits in on one of the album's longest tracks – blowing with a force that's enough to bring back The Great One – but the real charm of the set is Alice's piano work, bubbling out here with a sensitivity that we never would have expected from the harder-edge sessions cut with Coltrane. Titles include "Ohnedaruth", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Atomic Peace".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
