Carlos proves to the world that he's still got his jazz chops in the right direction – even during his stardom of the mid 70s – and he's working here with a group that mixes avant players like Coltrane, Jack DeJohnnette, and Dave Holland, and funkier players like Jules Broussard and Armando Peraza. The tracks are spacey meditation jams – sometimes quite out, sometimes mellow and soulful – and titles include "Guru Sri Chinmoy Aphorism – Angel Of Air", "Angel Of Water", "Angel Of Sunlight", and "Illuminations".

At the time of this recording, Carlos Santana was using the spiritual name Devadip, given to him by his personal guru Sri Chinmoy. Alice Coltrane, John's widow, was also a seeker with a guru of her own. She changed her name to Turiyasangitananda. She later used a shorter version as a first name. Officially, the artists named on this album were Devadip Carlos Santana and Turiya Alice Coltrane.

In the 1970s, Santana's admiration for John Coltrane knew no bounds. This respect went beyond the music. Santana was, as many were in those days, "trying to find himself." Coltrane's spiritual path was of great interest to him. It is not so surprising that one day he would play music with someone who had a connection to the man, the music and the spirit.

Alice Coltrane played piano in her husband's last band. The avant-garde music Coltrane was playing toward the end of his life was very much in her bag. Some angry Coltrane fans blamed her for influencing this last and least popular direction. She responded by suggesting that nobody led John Coltrane anywhere, and that she was playing what he asked her to play.

The orchestral ambience, spiritual overtones, collaborative success and the fusion-guitar anthem make this one of the more fulfilling jazz-rock performances of Santana's career. For some reason, it remains among his lesser-known accomplishments.
