Meditations was released in 1965. It features Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders as soloists, both playing tenor saxaphones. Much of the recording features extensive passages in free rhythm and extended saxophone techniques such as honked and overblown notes, as well as multiphonics. Alternative versions of tracks 2-5 had been recorded in September 1965 by the same musicians minus Sanders and Ali.
Meditations is about cleaning the mirror into the self, going as far through
the looking glass as is possible each time.
Making music as naked as the self can be brought to be.
-Nat Hentoff (1966 original liner notes to Meditations, A-9110)
