John Coltrane infinity 1972

Probably one of John Coltrane's most controversial albums, Infinity is made from unreleased tracks recorded in 1965 and 1966, which Alice Coltrane then added harp, tamboura, and organ to in 1972. Then she overdubbed Charlie Haden playing bass, and then she wrote orchestral arrangements and overdubbed strings. This beautiful and amazing album was reissued in Japan a few years back but its US rerelease is unlikely. Two tracks feature the "classic" quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones and the other two tracks feature the Pharoah Sanders, Rashied Ali era group.
