Women innovators in music
Journey in Satchidananda

On January 18, 2017 YouTube user Aguirre Cosmico writes:

After her husband's death, Alice continued the spiritual journey she started with John a few years before his untimely end. Indian spirituality and mysticism had played a very important role on the couple's life. On the musical side, it reflects a new type of music. Where indian ragas, harp and chants seamlessly blend with the most avant garde jazz tradition. I have infinite respect for a woman that managed to find her own unique voice and style among the legendary jazz figures of her time.
