She began playing jazz as a professional in Detroit, both with her own trio and as a duo with vibist Terry Pollard.

From 1962 to 1963 she played with Terry Gibbs's quartet, when she met John Coltrane, with whose group she played piano from 1965 until his death in 1967, and whom she married in 1966. Alice Coltrane had four children: singer Miki (Michele) from a previous marriage, saxophonists Oran and Ravi, all of whom survive their mother, and John W. Coltrane Jr, who died in a car accident in 1982. After her husband's death she continued to play with her own groups, moving into more and more meditative music, and latterly playing with her children. She was one of the few harpists in the history of jazz.

In the early 1970s, after years of involvement with Eastern religion, Coltrane took the name Swami Turyasangitananda. She was a devotee of the Indian guru Sathya Sai Baba. Alice Coltrane died on the 12th January 2007 in Los Angeles. Read more on Last.fm.
