"The composition 'Huntington Ashram Monastery' was first recorded as a piece for solo harp. However, the selection used in this album is played by the trio (Alice Coltrane, Ron Carter, and Rashied Ali). With the band, there is expansion and enhancing of sound, together with collective contributions of the musicians. Ashram means 'hermitage.' It is sometimes spelled 'ashrama.' Of the many humanly-constructed ashrams and monasteries throughout the world, I feel that the real 'ashrama' is in your heart." -- Alice Coltrane". TIP!!
