John and Alice Coltrane Riff in Heaven: Alice Coltrane 1937 - 2007


More than the wife of John. She was a composer. She made the harp a viable instrument in the jazz setting. She took pieces of the blues, gospel, and Indian music and made it HERS. She made spirituality something you could HEAR. Something you could FEEL.
