“I was 16 when I met Alice Coltrane at a concert in Ravinia Park, outside of Chicago. […] Her creativity impacted a host of musicians and listeners. For myself it was and still is very powerful. She gifted me with a spiritual and aesthetic openness that I continually cherish. This project is my way of honoring the great being that enabled the teenager to continue on the path of discovery, wonderment and finding one’s own voice.” The words of Hamid Drake, one of today’s greatest jazz drummers, as he explains the origins of this project. Alice Coltrane (1937-2007) was a pianist, organist and harpist. Following the death of her husband, the legendary John Coltrane, her music became intensely spiritual. She eventually dedicated her energies to the nurturing of a musical community of the faithful, and assumed the Sanskrit name Turiya, the title of this tribute, which in Hindu philosophy stands for the ultimate state of pure consciousness. The message of universal peace and love that runs through this music is the perfect contribution to the celebration of April 25, which marks the end of World War II in Italy.
