Ptah, the El Daoud, recorded and released in 1970, is the third solo album by Alice Coltrane. The album was recorded in the basement of her house in Dix Hills on Long Island, New York. This was Coltrane’s first album with horns. Pharoah Sanders is recorded on the right channel and Joe Henderson on the left channel throughout. Coltrane noted: “Joe Henderson is more on the intellectual side, while Pharoah is more abstract, more transcendental.” All the compositions were written by Alice Coltrane. The title track is named for an Egyptian god, Ptah, “the El Daoud”, the beloved.
