Melting Pot Radio Hour – Episode #9: Alice Coltrane Birthday Tribute! 2


ColtraneQuote

As today marks 80 years since Alice Coltrane first stepped into our world, I wanted to pay tribute to her on this month’s Melting Pot Radio Hour. This week there has been a lot to celebrate, as it has been a week full of birthdays. My birthday (along with my friend and birthday twin Emerald) was on Eclipse Monday, and then two other friends on Wednesday and Saturday. In fact, most of this show is connected to a mix that I made for a dear friend to give to her on her birthday this past week. I’ve added a couple of songs from the recent collection The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda, released by Luaka Bop (soon to be highlighted in a separate post, which will also include pictures from Alice Coltrane’s Ashram, which is still operating here in the Los Angeles area), to give an even fuller picture of her extraordinary artistry.
