If you’re in the mood Lord Of Lords is an amazing listen, full of high drama or calming spirituality, but be warned this really is nothing like what she has done before. The nearest comparison would be her phenomenal World Galaxy album, but that still had elements of jazz to it, whereas this album really is only orchestral and contains none of the snaky jazzy rhythms of that previous album. Probably not an album you’d chuck on just for something to listen to, but when has Alice Coltrane ever made an album so lightweight as to just be a chuck-on album.

Alice Coltrane’s newly reissued Lord of Lords capped off a trio of richly orchestral albums in the early ’70s. It is a slow-building, cosmic, unnerving throbbing organism of sound. Most artists who devote themselves even fleetingly to religious music don’t do it well enough to earn many converts. But Alice Coltrane ’s devotional music-particularly World Spirituality Classics 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda, released last year, a decade after her death-now earns more plaudits than the string of albums she recorded in quick succession for the Impulse! label in the late 1960s and early ’70s, just before she foreswore secular life, moved to California and. established an ashram in the Santa Monica Mountains. The last of those albums, 1972’s Lord of Lords, is now being reissued on vinyl by Superior Viaduct and it may be the most ecstatic record she made.

Theoretically, the present album should’ve been a trio consisting of Alice, bassist Haden and drummer Riley, but in reality, this is much more a total symphonic experience, rather than a jazz-trio thing.
