For many artists and music-lovers today, Alice Turiyasangitananda Coltrane is the embodiment of jazz and spirituality. An esteemed jazz composer, harpist and pianist, her catalog of recordings, including Journey in Satchidananda, Universal Consciousness and Translinear Light, continue to inspire a new generation of musicians and seekers. This panel reflecting on her life and impact features jazz legend Reggie Workman, who performed and recorded with both John and Alice Coltrane – as well as a who’s who in the history of jazz. Also joining the discussion is saxophonist Richard Howell, whose rich career includes work with Etta James, Charlie Haden and Don Cherry; and Destiny Muhammad, a masterful and exploratory musician who builds on the legacy of pioneering jazz harpists like Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane.

The panel is hosted by Bay Area arts journalist Andrew Gilbert (San Francisco Chronicle, KQED, Bay Area News Group), and followed the next day with a performance at Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, Alice Coltran Tribute  – Brooklyn Rage Massive Ft. Reggie Workman.
