We stumbled over this gem recently – a compilation dedicated to American jazz composer Alice Coltrane – aka Flying Lotus’ auntie!

She was central to the Indocentric/Spiritual jazz of the early ’70s and arguably the first instance of a female instrumentalist assuming a defining role in a jazz subgenre. She spent the majority of her life seeking spiritually in both music and her private life & shared her husband’s [Jazz Legend John Coltrane] instincts in taking great artistic risks to pursue a spiritual quest. – Jazz Times

It’s put together by a bunch of producers – most of them aren’t even on our radar to be honest, but this will change. There’s always this feeling that the Jazz movement of the 50’s & 60’s & the beat movement of today have things in common. Both attempted to break down, extend & alter the conventions of their original genres (Jazz & Hip Hop) & were never afraid to experiment & improvise to create something that wasn’t accepted commercially at the time. And here the two come together in perfect harmony.
