Alice Coltrane - A Monastic Trio
Alice Coltrane
A Monastic Trio
LP | 1968 | US | Reissue (Superior Viaduct)
25,99 €*
Release:1968 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Born Alice McLeod into a musical Detroit family, Alice Coltrane began playing piano at age seven and later studied with Bud Powell in Paris. Upon returning to the States, she joined vibraphonist Terry Gibbs’s group and eventually shared a bill with the John Coltrane Quartet. In 1965, the two wed in Juárez, Mexico, and played alongside one another until her husband’s last performance in May, 1967.

A Monastic Trio, created in the year following her husband’s passing, is 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 Pharoah 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.

As the late Amiri Baraka writes, “‘I Want to See You’ is a monastic piano concerto. With echoes of Europe..., it has a solemnity and majesty to it.... Yes, monastic is the word. The piano broods in its earth imagination.”
Alice Coltrane - Eternity
Alice Coltrane
Eternity
LP | 1976 | US | Reissue (Antarctica Starts Here)
24,99 €*
Release:1976 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Released in 1976, Eternity was Alice Coltrane’s first album for Warner Bros. after eight wondrous records on Impulse! Combining the drones and textures of India, the gospel and R&B of her Detroit youth and the dissonance of modern classical composition, Coltrane’s music in the ‘70s would become increasingly difficult to categorize.

Having moved a few years earlier to California (where she founded the Vedantic Center, an Ashram for spiritual studies), Coltrane stretches out on Eternity—incorporating various musical styles, including a stirring adaptation of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring—and the results are dazzling, both in sonic scope and emotional range.
Alice Coltrane - Lord Of Lords
Alice Coltrane
Lord Of Lords
LP | 1972 | US | Reissue (Superior Viaduct)
22,79 €* 23,99 € -5%
Release:1972 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Originally released in 1972, Lord Of Lords was Alice Coltrane’s final album for Impulse! and the last installment in her awe-inspiring trilogy that also included Universal Consciousness and World Galaxy. While all three records featured strings alongside a jazz ensemble, Lords Of Lords stood apart from its predecessors due to the sheer size of the orchestra (12 violins, 6 violas and 7 cellos, arranged and conducted by Coltrane herself) and its refined, blissful performances—shining a vital light on the devotional path that she would follow for the rest of her career.

On the first two pieces, “Andromeda’s Suffering” and “Sri Rama Ohnedaruth” (titled after the spiritual name for her late husband), Alice’s dazzling piano and harp blend perfectly with the blanket of strings, while the haunting rhythm section of Charlie Haden and Ben Riley and a magnificent, droning electric organ emerge immaculately on the title track and closer “Going Home.” Coltrane’s musical vision is bold in its imagination and cosmic in scope, yet remains intensely personal and immediate. Lord Of Lords points inward as much as to the beyond, recalling her classical roots and recasting Eastern modes to radically invert the American avant-garde and spiritual jazz traditions.

This first-time vinyl reissue has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes.
Alice Coltrane - Radha-Krshna Nama Sankirtana
Alice Coltrane
Radha-Krshna Nama Sankirtana
LP | 1977 | US | Reissue (Antarctica Starts Here)
24,99 €*
Release:1977 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Radha-Krsna Nama Sankirtana was the first of two albums Alice Coltrane released in 1977 (the other being Transcendence). Coltrane’s music during this period grew out of an epiphany in which she would renounce secular life and don the orange robes of a swamini (spiritual teacher in the Hindu tradition). Musically, this meant leaving jazz behind (at least partially) and embracing the chants and rhythms of devotional music.

The first half of Radha-Krsna is mostly filled with simple arrangements of bhajans (Hindu devotional songs) and features the singing of students from the Vedantic Center, the Ashram that Coltrane founded in 1975. The group bounces with the joy of a gospel choir (not coincidentally, some had backgrounds in Southern Baptist churches).

Alice Coltrane
Transcendence
LP | 1977 | US | Reissue (Antarctica Starts Here)
24,99 €*
Release:1977 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Transcendence was not only Alice Coltrane’s last studio album for Warner Bros., it would also be her last studio work for nearly three decades. While Eternity and Radha-Krsna Nama Sankirtana followed the composer’s muse through an exciting range of musical styles and influences, Transcendence is perhaps the most fully realized of the three LPs, synthesizing the best elements of each into a monumental whole.
Alice Coltrane - Transfiguration
Alice Coltrane
Transfiguration
2LP | 1978 | US | Reissue (Antarctica Starts Here)
28,99 €*
Release:1978 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
By the late ’70s, Alice Coltrane had largely gravitated away from jazz, incorporating Hindu chants and hymns into her music to reflect a newfound sense of creative omnipotence. However, in April 1978, she would return to her roots, performing at University of California, Los Angeles to make her first and only live album.

Transfiguration, featuring drummer Roy Haynes and bassist Reggie Workman, showcases Alice’s many compositional talents and fierce improvisatory abilities. Throughout this double LP set, her playing evokes the time spent in her late husband John Coltrane’s band and the avant-garde music of her earlier years.

Lady Sings The Blues
LP | 1956 | EU | Reissue (Wax Love)
12,99 €*
Release:1956 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Though her late career was marred by addiction and personal issues, and her chipper voice had grown raspy and hardened by the years and the pain, Lady Sings The Blues has come to be regarded as one of the finest albums of her career, despite a lack of critical enthusiasm at the time. Originally released in 1956, concurrently with her autobiography, Holiday was joined for these sessions by tenor saxophonist Paul Quinichette, trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Harry Edison, pianist Wynton Kelly, and guitarists Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel. A beautiful, smoky, and slow-burning piece of jazz vocal history. Essential.

Laura Jurd hat mit dem neuen Album "Wonder Trail", der Band Dinosaur und Keyboard Maestro
Elliot Galvin den Synth-Pop der 80er neu interpretiert. Die Band Dinosaur überrascht und beeindruckt mit ihrem neuen Album ‘Wonder Trail’. Dinosaurs
zweites Album ist anders als man es von Laura Jurds erwartet hätte. Die mehrfach preisgekrönte
Jurd hat eine Miles ähnliche Art ihre Musik zu schreiben, um viele musikalische Welten zu
beleuchten. Mit ihrem neuen Album Wonder Trail, der Band Dinosaur und Keyboard Maestro Elliot
Galvin hat sie nun auch den Synth-Pop der 80er auf der Suche nach einem neuen Sound
entdeckt. Dies ist aber nicht grundloses Ausleihen oder eine Art von Hipster, Retro
Post-Modernität. Jurd und Galvin nutzen den Keyboardsound um in viele musikalische
Richtungen zu gelangen, z.B. Improvisation, Rock und Folklore. Aber wie bei jedem richtigen
Song ist das Ganze größer als die Summe der Teile.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Saxophonist, composer and bandleader Nubya Garcia is back with the eagerly awaited next chapter to her musical unfolding, When We Are. Enabled with the support of the prestigious Steve Reid Foundation’s InNOVAtion award, and with Eglo records co-founder Sam Shepherd (Floating Points) as her mentor, this self-released EP features two newly recorded compositions from the much-lauded artist. The record also comes with B-side remixes from two generations of London’s finest producers, K-15 and Maxwell Owin. Following on from her scorching sophomore release, Nubya’s 5ive (jazz:refreshed), When We Are sees the trailblazing player take typically self assured steps into new territory with electronic experimentation. “I’ve been inspired a lot by the producers around me at the moment, people like Ben Hayes, Tom Misch, Joe Armon- Jones, Jake Long and Maxwell Owin”, said Garcia. “There’s an electronic vibe in there that I wanted to explore more, and this release feels like a positive evolution from the last EP.” Much like the celebrated Brownswood release, We Out Here, where Garcia features on five of the nine tracks, When We Are offers a snapshot of the artist she is today and the organic musical languages she continues to form with her long term collaborators Femi Koleoso, Joe Armon-Jones and Daniel Casimir. The title track opens with the easy cascading of Armon-Jones on keys, Garcia’s signature erudite tone dancing against the drummer Koleoso’s boxy, afro-tinged hip hop runs; all three riding on Casimir’s beautifully subtle, abetting bass. Crisp and clean, the track’s sweet inflections are carried into spacious territory by light touch pedal effects. Source comprises of shape-shifting, Tetris-like grooves. It’s a characteristically sophisticated sound from the band, where each player is able to shine around the trademark fusion of gospel, soul, broken beat, Afro-Caribbean and Latin styles that Garcia has deftly crafted into her own. Alongside her releases, Garcia’s reputation as a DJ is burgeoning, bolstered by her hit radio residencies on platforms including Balamii and NTS, and a growing number of live sets across Europe. The record partly draws on the energy of the club-nights that shaped her formative years. The grime and garage nights in north London, dub nights across the river in south London, and of course, the infamous Steez performance jams that have served as a rite of passage for much of the scene.

Wenn es allein um die Vokalkunst geht, dann ist die Jazz-Welt fest in weiblicher Hand. Man denke nur an
Diven wie Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald oder Nina Simone. Aber auch Sängerinnen jüngerer Tage, zum
Beispiel Sarah Vaughan oder Diana Krall, beeindrucken nicht minder mit ihren verzaubernden Stimmen.
Grund genug für das französische Label Wagram, die renommiertesten Sängerinnen der letzten Jahrzehnte
mit herausragenden Interpretationen von Evergreens wie "Summertime", "Sing, Sing, Sing", "My Funny
Valentine" oder "My Baby Just Cares For Me" auf einem Doppelalbum zu vereinen. Neben den Genannten
treten unter anderem Shirley Bassey ("I've Got You Under My Skin"), Dina Washington ("What A Difference A
Day Makes"), Doris Day ("Keep Smilin', Keep Laughin', Be Happy") und Aretha Franklin ("Try A Little
Tenderness") in Erscheinung.

Jazz mit Einflüssen aus dem Nahen Osten: Drei fantasievolle Electro-Remixe und ein
neues Stück.
Im Mai 2017 machte die britisch-bahrainische Musikerin Yazz Ahmed mit dem arabisch geprägten Jazz-
Album "La Saboteuse" auf sich aufmerksam. Auf ihrem Naim-Labeldebüt ging die auf Trompete und
Flügelhorn spezialisierte Musikerin eigenwillige, Jazz-Fans rund um den Globus begeisternde Wege, was ihr
Vergleiche mit Sons of Kemet, Yussef Kamaal, The Comet is Coming und Kamasi Washington einbrachte.
"Futuristic jazz with arabic scales", befand zum Beispiel der "Guardian". Und "All About Jazz" stellte fest: "It is
a statement in its own right, and one with substance". Eine Remix-EP mit drei elektronischen "La Saboteuse"-
Überarbeitungen setzt das orientalische Jazz-Abenteuer nun gelungen fort. DJ Khalab, Blacksea Não Maya
und Plimmer nahmen sich die Stücke "The Lost Pearl", "Jamil Jamal" und "Al Emadi" zur Brust. Den
Schlusspunkt setzen Yazz Ahmed und der Produzent Noel Langley mit dem neu eingespielten Track
"Spindrifting". Diesen beschreibt die Künstlerin mit den Worten: "A rich, dark tapestry of timbres and moods,
almost orchestral in places". Er lässt ahnen, welche Wege Yazz Ahmed bei ihrem neuen, dem dann dritten
Album gehen könnte.
