From the sleevenotes
“Referring, for instance, to Coltrane’s Meditations recording with Pharoah Sanders, Albert remarked: ‘The father, son, and holy ghost. What Coltrane was talking about there - maybe it was a biblical term: he was the father, Pharoah was the son, and I was the holy ghost. And only he could tell me things like that’”
