Alice Coltrane, RIP

Jeez. First Robert Anton Wilson and now Alice Coltrane - a bad month for artists I admire dying. If you don't know her work, check out A Journey in Satchidananda - a unique fusion of jazz, Indian music, and maybe just the slightest smidgen of early 70's rhythmic rock/funk. Her piano on later Coltrane, after Tyner left, is really quite lovely, too. I haven't followed her recent work closely, but I'm sure there's much to admire.
