“Blue Nile” – Alice Coltrane

I didn’t discover Alice Coltrane’s music until I heard her music on a sampler CD back in the late 1990s. Alice Coltrane played the harp and the sounds that she and her band achieved are truly mesmerizing. After doing some research, I discovered she was John Coltrane’s second wife. While she’s gotten much renown in jazz circles, her work has unfortunately been overshadowed by her husband’s success. An artist truly worthy of further research. From the 1970 album “Ptah, the El Daoud”
