Sealed 1978 2LP Gatefold Original. Corner Crease On Bottom Spine. Recorded Live At Schoenberg Hall on April 16, 1978 With Reggie Workman On Bass & Roy Haynes Playing Drums. “Alice Coltrane Never Had An Easy Time Of It With Critics. That She Was Able To Pursue Her Rugged Musical Vision In The Midst Of Controversy (Many Claimed She Was "The Yoko Ono Of The John Coltrane Quartet," In That She Replaced Mccoy Tyner When Trane Decided To Shift The Focus Of His Band) Is, In Retrospect, A Heroic Act, Though, Humble As She Is, She Would Never See It That Way. This Double-LP Live Set Reveals In Total The Ambitious And Profound Free Jazz And Universal Musical Frontiers Ms. Coltrane Was Able To Explore In Both Small And Larger Groups. The Lion's Share Of The Music Here Features Her In A Trio Setting With Bassist Reggie Workman And Drummer Roy Haynes. Ms. Coltrane Performs On Piano And Organ. Alice Coltrane's Organ Soloing Here Is Very Much In The Angular Shifting, Shaping, And Contouring That Her Husband's Soprano Playing Had. It Articulates A Phrase Repeatedly Until Every Ounce Of Emotion And Spirit Have Been Wrung From It And Then Dives Straight Into The Next. The Interplay Between Workman And Haynes Was So Telepathic, It Pushed Ms. Coltrane Into New Realms Further Inside These Shimmering Harmonics Until Their Shards Gave Way To A Series Of Symbols And Meanings That Opened Onto New Vistas In Tonal Metalinguistic Post-Tonalism. It's An Exhausting Work, But One That Leaves The Listener In A State Of Near Disbelief At What Just Transpired. If You Can Only Own One Alice Coltrane Record, This Should Be It.’ – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
