MATTHEW HALSALL & THE GONDWANA ORCHESTRA - JOURNEY INTO SATCHIDANANDA VINYL RE-ISSUE (12")
Release Date: 24th August 2018
In celebration of Gondwana Records' 10th anniversary, here we have the re-issue of these two incredible Alice Coltrane covered by Gondwana Record's Matthew Halsall and The Gondwana Orchestra which was originally released in 2015. Halsall makes no secret of his love for Alice Coltrane's music, having penned his incredible When The World Was One LP in honour of her, which even included the closer 'Tribute to Alice Coltrane' and these two covers do the tracks more than just justice by putting Halsall's own spin on them. Wonderful stuff!
For Fans Of: Alice Coltrane, Mammal Hands, Maisha, Sam Wilkes
