A Hi Fidelity Vinyl Experience

The next AudioCollective event coinciding with the Cheltenham Jazz Festival will feature the Journey in Satchidananda album by Alice Coltrane on Saturday 5th May at The Swan JiS is Alice’s fourth solo album whose title (and title track) reflects her inspiration by Swami Satchidananda.

Alice Coltrane (née McLeod, August 27, 1937 – January 12, 2007), also known by her adopted Sanskrit name Turiyasangitananda or Turiya Alice Coltrane, was an American jazz pianist, organist, harpist, singer, composer, and swamini. One of the few harpists in the history of jazz, she recorded many albums as a bandleader, beginning in the late 1960s and early 1970s for Impulse! and other major record labels.

Tracks from the album reflect her interest in Hinduism, Indian music and the culture of North Africa and the Midle East. “Something About John Coltrane” is based on themes by her late husband, John Coltrane.

This is a truely inspirational album  and will be complemented by music from similar spiritual jazz artists such as Pharoah Sanders and Don Cherry. Sounds like a great night is in store!

The album will be played on equipment supplied by the AC crew and also include discussion (not too heavy!) video footage (of the performer) and a chance to bring along and play your own related vinyl. If you dont have any vinyl but do have ideas for related music we can play requests via our new high fidelity TIDAL streamer.

Each month we’ll be giving away a fresh copy of the vinyl  in our free to enter raffle too …
