Alice gone, too? Very sad.
Unlike many a Coltrane purist, I love his later stuff ... the music he made with the later bands, Alice and Pharaoh Sanders, the cosmic stuff ... best work he did.

Yeah, I prefer the later 'cosmic' stuff (not that I'm an expert or nuffink), but I've got 3 or 4 records floating round from 50s/60s...

A saintly person, Coltrane ... and according to a TV documentary I watched last year, out of his head on acid the entire time he was making all the later stuff. Considering that and his devout Christianity, no wonder he was given to cosmic statements.
