I've been a fan of jazz for many years and I knew the name Alice Coltrane but I didn't know much about her and hadn't really listened to her music

I got a recommend from YouTube and started listening to her and was greatly impressed with her talent and abilities

I can't help feeling that she is underrated and hasn't gotten her propers because she was a female


this is one of my favorites from her:

Yes, she is a unique talent in her own right, but I would imagine being in the shadow of her famous husband has made it harder for her to be recognized for her own set of skills and vision. She was very much ahead of her time in many ways.

I would agree that females are generally underappreciated in jazz. Alice Coltrane is among better known and respected though
