Cosmic Music, originally self-released by Alice Coltrane in 1968, after John Coltrane's death, and later issued by Impulse!, features two tracks (‘Manifestation’ and 'Rev. King') by John Coltrane's legendary final quintet that were recorded in San Francisco on February 2nd, 1966 and two more ('Lord Help Me To Be' and 'The Sun') from Alice Coltrane's very first session as a bandleader, recorded six months after her husband's passing. Foreshadowing her majestic debut, A Monastic Trio, 'Lord Help Me To Be' brings Alice's celestial piano playing and inspired improvisations to the foreground with Sanders, Garrison and drummer Ben Riley rumbling in tow. 'The Sun', a meditative ballad with subtle urgency, perfectly closes the album's contemplative circle. As John Coltrane recites on the final track: "May there be peace and love and perfection throughout all creation."
