Africa - Live At The Carnegie Hall 1971
Warning: Last items in stock!
A fantastic live performance from Alice Coltrane – and one that features a very heavy-hitting group, one that features both Pharoah Sanders and Archie Shepp on tenor, in a spirit that's as strong and righteous as Alice's Ptah The El Daoud album! The set features one long track – a reading of the John Coltrane tune "Africa" – soaring, stretched out, and done in a very spiritual way by the whole group – building in intensity, but also with moments of more contemplative energy too. The lineup features two bassists – Jimmy Garrison and Cecil McBee – two drummers – Ed Blackwell and Clifford Jarvis – plus tambura from Tulsi and harmonium from Kumar Kramer – all laid out with both piano and harp from Alice Coltrane herself.
