5.0 out of 5 stars essential spiritiual 60's conscious music, 5 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Ptah The El Daoud (Audio CD)
any fans of black deep "conscious" music be it - ranging from gill scott-heron, the roots, public enemy,john coltrane, erykah badu,etc should just buy this lp : its an essential addition to the black pantheon of spiritual,fiery,beautiful/sometimes not-beautiful music. its jazz with two of the best tenor players of all time : pharoah sanders and joe henderson, coltrane herself on piano+ harp,(with ron carter on bass + ben riley on drums) and has incredibly moving compositions. all john coltrane fans should have this cd by his beloved wife also, who wrote the compositions, played piano + harp to stunning effect. joyous, moving, profound, searching music.

eastern mysticism features heavily on the album with a deep spiritual,transcendental spirit combined with Coltrane's obvious empathy, like her husband John + Pharoahs' Lp s just previously. "Ptah" for me, is Alice Coltrane's most focused + consistent lp i've heard to date with four marvellous and wide ranging tracks showcasing all performers in their best light. recorded in 1970 and essential.

timeless "deep" black music.
