A Monastic Trio, created in the year following her husband's passing, is Alice Coltrane's first recording as a band leader and features six original compositions.

While John's spirit can be felt throughout – from the song titles ("Ohnedaruth" was his adopted Hindu name) to the personnel (Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali, and Pharaoh Sanders were frequent collaborators) – the album showcases Alice's immense talent for fusing spiritual free-jazz and new age with classical, Eastern, post-bop and gospel.
