Alice Coltrane - Lord of Lords

Amazing 1972 sky-reaching orchestral modal music with Alice Coltrane on piano, organ and harp, Charlie Haden on bass and Ben Riley on drums, along with a 16-piece string orchestra. The organ on the last track "Going Home," an old gospel song, sounds like a mix between drone and blues, while her interpretation of Stravinsky's "Firebird" is otherwordly. Ripped from the 2011 Impulse! cd which also included the album Universal Consciousness.
