"Africa" - Alice Coltrane, Carnegie Hall, NYC, 1972
Repost for Alice’s birthday. This is just one track, but it’s a long one: 28 minutes worth of Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, Jimmy Garrison, Ed Blackwell, Clifford Jarvis and Cecil McBee performing a fiery rendition of John’s “Africa,” a little over a decade after the original was recorded. It’s an intense ride, as perhaps is obvious from the players involved! Recording quality is excellent, capturing an historic occasion that, to my knowledge, has never been released officially. I have no idea how much Alice performed live during the 1970s, but this is the only bootleg I’ve got of her during that era.
