John Coltrane - Ole Mixtape

John Coltrane - Ole Mixtape:
"...Trane exemplified Albert Ayler’s maxim: music is the healing force of the universe. Beyond healing, Trane’s music was also a spiritual force for good, an aural catalyst that encouraged and inspired all of us to reach deeper into ourselves, higher above the mundanities and mendacities of the world.

This little mixtape attempts to get to that healing/spiritual uplift dyad..."
This mix is from a blog called "Breath of Life - a Conversation About Black Music". I downloaded itlast fall. The mix no longer live on their site, so I've reposted it here...
