Impulse! is releasing a virtually unreleased work by the legendary and late jazz godmother Alice Coltrane, a 1981 recording titled Kirtan: Turiya Sings. The album comprises nine devotional songs originally released in 1982 only on cassette for ashram students. In addition to Alice's voice and instrument, those recordings included parts for synthesizer, strings and effects.

On this album, you will find yourself tuned in to blues, gospel, black American church music, fused with the Carnatic style of singing from South India. But there are also the complex Motown harmonies of native Detroit, as well as bebop roots, the impact of John Coltrane's music and the influence of European classical music - especially the beloved Igor Stravinsky.
