Artist Focus: Alice Coltrane

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Harpist, pianist, composer, jazz band leader, swamini and visionary; Alice Coltrane has been one of station manger Lupini’s biggest influences and loves over the last decade. Her rich, warm psychedelic sound and her inimitable playing techniques cement her as one of the jazz greats. An hour is far too short a time, but contained within is sixty minutes of pure bliss. Enjoy.
