Recorded in the basement studio of the Coltrane family home in Dix Hills in 1970, Alice Coltrane’s fourth album is a transcendent masterpiece of spiritual jazz. The title track is an ode to the Egyptian God, Ptah (the El Daoud meaning “the beloved”).  Many moments on the album reach what Coltrane herself defined the term Turiya as: “A state of consciousness - the high state of Nirvana, the goal of human life.”
