Alice Coltrane – RIP

Alice died Friday of respiratory failure at the age of 69 after a lifetime of work that was both inspired and inspiring. She was forever linked to her legendary husband John Coltrane, but her own compositions were nothing short of totally original.

She was a pianist and organist, but was also noted for bringing the harp into the jazz idiom. Alice was also a well known Hindu guru in California. Our sympathies go out to her entire family.
