  • KULU SE MAMA is a somewhat neglected LP recorded by John Coltrane in 1965 during a key transitional stage in his career. Two of the album's three lengthy tracks ("Vigil" and "Welcome") feature the legendary saxophonist with his classic quartet (including bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones, and pianist McCoy Tyner). And these pieces have the open, exploratory, modal feel familiar to fans of Coltrane's A LOVE SUPREME period. "Kulu Se Mama" itself features an expanded line-up that includes saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, drummer Frank Butler, bassist and bass clarinetist Donald Garrett, and percussionist/singer Juno Lewis (who wrote the piece), with an African feel that includes layered polyrhythms and chanted vocals.
Professional Reviews
Q (10/00, p.139) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Equal parts spiritual journey and confounding tunelessness.... he redefined what passed for both melody and musical structure..."

Down Beat (12/00, p.94) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...The most magisterial of all Coltrane titles....the tenor saxophones of Coltrane and Sanders again pushing the limits of swing..."
