Alice Coltrane & Pharoah Sanders – Ptah, the el Daoud (1970)

by Fine Melodies

One of the great albums by Alice Coltrane. Many of her albums are with Pharoah Sanders. Her albums are considered Meditative. Out of all the albums I have of hers, this is the one I play most, although I went through a phase of only listening to Universal Consciousness and nothing else.

She had a Vedantic center off Kanan in Agoura called Shanti Anantam Ashram. I’ve hiked past it a few times. If you go to the Westlake Reservoir hike but take the left trail instead of the usual one, you follow it all the way down to Triunfo Canyon. That’s where it is.
