Turiyasangitananda Transcends

Several friends have forwarded me sad news that Turiyasangitananda, Alice Coltrane, has passed at age 69. I count her as one of my great musical inspirations and this news makes me very sad. I feel so lucky to have seen her perform twice. Her albums are things of singular, passionate, eccentric beauty, compelling in their purposefulness and spiritual dedication.

As her spirit joins the ancestors and transcends to other planes I thank her for her presence in our lives and may her music live forever.
