“Meditations” is a suite of music composed by jazz musician John Coltrane. Much of the recording is avant-garde, featuring extensive passages in free rhythm and extended saxophone techniques such as honked and overblown notes, as well as multiphonics.
“Meditations” was considered as the spiritual follow-up to “A Love Supreme” , and features both Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders as soloists , each playing tenor saxophones. These recordings were later issued as “First Meditations” (for quartet).
