Translinear Light

Alice Coltrane's first jazz-informed album in 26 years returns a fascinating figure back to the scene. Coltrane plays organ and piano exclusively here, and her first-rate collaborators include bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and, as chief saxophone soloist and producer, Coltrane’s son Ravi. Sounding as if she's picked up where she left off all that time ago, Coltrane displays controlled passion on her keyboard improvisations; her focus and ingenuity inspire Ravi to some of his most stirring playing to date. Alice Coltrane has been in the shadow of her husband, John Coltrane, since she first gained widespread attention on joining his band in 1965. Translinear Light gives ample evidence that Alice Coltrane is to be respected for her own impressive achievements.
