Devadip Carlos Santana & Turiya Alice Coltrane - Illuminations download album

Complete your Devadip Carlos Santana & Turiya Alice Coltrane collection. I bought this album during a period when I was into Indian mysticism and my brother bought The Swing of Delight from "Devadip" Carlos Santana which I really enjoyed. I loved the music - there's something about the strings, the harp and long sustained guitar notes that really makes this album special. Unfortunately, it is a bit scratchy towards the end of the side with a trace of groove distortion.

Illuminations is a 1974 collaboration between Alice Coltrane and Carlos Santana. Jazz musicians Jules Broussard, Jack DeJohnette and Dave Holland also contributed to the record, on saxophone, flute, drums and bass. Alice Coltrane delivers some harp glissando, while the string orchestra adds a serene mood to the music

Devadip Carlos Santana & Turiya Alice Coltrane - Illuminations (Full Album). This is followed by the nine minutes of Angel of Air and Angel of Light, featuring Santana playing piercingly, long notes for a slow solo. It’s coupled with the strokes of Alice Coltrane’s harp and Jules Broussard’s saxophone under a moody, overtly romantic string arrangement. The next song, Bliss: The Eternal Now offers much the same, but hardly features Santana and.

Illuminations - Carlos Santana & Turiya Alice Coltrane LP Vinyl Record Album. This is beautiful album made in collaboration with Alice Coltrane and inspired by the then Carlos' spiritual association with Sri Chinmoy. Upright bass, various percussion (but hardly any drums!) and occasional acoustic moments provide a pleasant and enjoying listen.

Rate the SACD of Devadip Carlos Santana & Turiya Alice Coltrane - ILLUMINATIONS. 10: Great Content, Surround Mix, and Fidelity. A combo of Coltrane dissonance and Caravanseri era Santana guitar drive this unique album along at a nice clip. A touch of noodling here and there barely intrudes, and at under 36 minutes it does not overstay its welcome. The Quad remaster is up to Vocalion's usual stellar standards. Strongly recommended for adventurous listeners into fusion and Carlos' modal guitar playing. Wow, you are the 2nd person on QQ to use the term "noodling".

In the former, Turiya and Devadip bestow upon us flute, bass, heavenly strings, pointillistic, crystalline guitar stalagmites, and cymbal splashes. The latter is a glistening pool of almost New Age-y bliss (not a diss, by any means), as these world-class musicians-including Santana electric pianist Tom Coster, and Miles Davis comrades Jack DeJohnette and Dave Holland-summon some of the most delicate, celestial aural tapestries in their blessed careers. The album’s peak comes with the 15-minute Angel Of Sunlight, the closest thing to Love Devotion Surrender on Illuminations.
