A late album of John Coltrane made in 1965. At this point Trane was in full-force searching for God in his music. He expanded his classic quintet of McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones to include Pharoah Sanders, Donald Garrett and Frank Butler.

Track Listing:
1. Kulu Se Mama
2. Vigil
3. Welcome
4. Selflessness
5. Dusk Dawn
6. Dusk Dawn, alternate take

The album's title track was composed by Juno Lewis, it involves, as the name may suggest, many African influences including some chanting. Selflessness is more of Trane experimenting ala Meditations, the other tracks are older recordings with the original quartet. This album is a little more accesible than some of the really late Trane, but it's still out there, caveat emptor.
