This is from a posthumous John Coltrane record called "infinity", still yet to be issued on CD, etc... I found it a little while ago at Academy in Brooklyn - no idea what it was - wild artwork - ! - totally incredible. Alice overdubbed strings, harp, organ, Rashied Ali, Charlie Haden, Pharoah and more over some unreleased recordings of the original quartet!
Also of note, Coltrane had already overdubbed himself, doubling the melody on this one. The original recording, sans Alice's arrangements was issued on CD by Impulse, called "Living Space" - with some other unreleased quartet yams.
Never ceases to hit me hard. Been wanting to see this in Blogsville USA for so long.
