DIGIPACK EDITION

Kulu Sé Mama, recorded in October 1965 in Los Angeles, features Coltrane's classic quartet—with pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones—but every instrument save the piano is doubled up by additional musicians. Sanders joins Coltrane on tenor, Donald Garrett joins Garrison on bass (and bass clarinet), and Frank Butler joins Jones on drums. Juno Lewis, who wrote the tune and contributes chanted vocals (another astral jazz signature), plays a variety of West African hand drums, bells and a conch shell.
