Alice Coltrane - Journey In Satchidananda

The second wife of one Mr John Coltrane (who took over McCoy Tyner's spot at the piano during the last couple of years of Trane's life), had quite an amount of talent herself, perfectly displayed on the spiritual brilliance of this album. With the great Pharoah Sanders in tow, and also Rashied Ali, who had both played with her husband, plus some crazy percussion, a harp and Hindu influence, you know you are in for something special.

Measures up to a lot of what her husband did; though a comparison to the work of Pharoah Sanders is more accurate stylistically speaking, and it is as equally great as those also.
