VF Mix 94: Alice Coltrane by Maisha and Música Macondo



A spiritual journey.

If there’s one legendary jazz musician that has come to the fore in recent years, it’s Alice Coltrane. With her later devotional work the subject of Luaka Bop’s expansive compilation, and collaborative album with husband John Coltrane reissued by Superior Viaduct, the pianist and harpist is being heard by more than ever before.

Jake Long, drummer of London-based jazz outfit Maisha has teamed up with Tim Garcia of Música Macondo for a 100-minute introduction to Coltrane’s most iconic work.
