2 - SUN RA - BLUE YORK - (LP) 
JEANNE DIELMAN


Herman Poole Blount, better known to the world as Sun Ra, lived more musical lives in his 79 years on this planet (and others) than seems possible. In the 30s he was the most rigorous bandleader in Birmingham, heading the Sonny Blount Orchestra and filling every waking moment with music or philosophical discussions, by the 40s he had moved to Chicago and performed with luminaries such as Wynonie Harris, Fletcher Henderson, and Coleman Hawkins. By the 50s he had changed his name to Sun Ra and began performing with longtime Arkestra bandmates John Gilmore and Marshall Allen. By the 1960s, Sun Ra's vision of spiritual free jazz was fully formed. This collection features unreleased tracks from Sun Ra's Arkestra from 1963, focuses heavily on the masterful tenor saxophone of John Gilmore.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Blue York 02. Meteor Shower 03. The Myth 04. Infinity 05. Conversation Of The Universe 06. The Beginning Of 07. Endlessness 08. Red Planet Mars 09. Cosmic Rays / The Next Stop Mars

4 - SUN RA - CRYSTAL SPEARS - (LP) 
MODERN HARMONIC


RELEASED FOR BLACK FRIDAY, 2018. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE! Recorded in 1973, these solar guided improvisations of unbridled cacophony were originally rejected by ABC/Impulse, due to sounding way too unusual! 'Crystal Spears' (or 'Crystal Clear' as mentioned on the tape box) subsumes a cathartic brawl between Minimoog and Yamaha combo organ, with percussionists providing tonal textures, and plaintive oboe colliding with roaring electronic keyboards. Pressed on ORANGE VINYL, this special release comes with liner notes by Ra-ficionado Brother Cleve! A poster is also included!

8 - SUN RA - EARLY SINGLES 1955-1962 - (LP) 
BLACK ROOSTER


Sun Ra started his own label El Saturn (or Saturn) in 1957 in order to release his own recordings, as well as those featuring his Arkestra backing local R&B and doo-wop groups.

19 - SUN RA - MEDIA DREAM - (LP) 
ART YARD


This is the companion to Disco 3000, made on the same classic Italian quartet tour with John Gilmore, Michael Ray (trumpet) and the minimal but perfect Luqman Ali (drums). Ra himself plays piano and electronic keyboards, including the mysterious Crumar Mainman, which Ra describes as like a piano, organ, clavichord, cello, violin and brass instruments and which also, importantly, has a facility for pre-programmed bass-lines and electronic percussion, which Ra uses constantly and to great effect in this small ensemble setting and seldom, if ever, elsewhere. The best of this collection (most of CD1) is luminous: very electronic, often rhythmical and melodic, always economical and making every sound count. These tracks are like no other jazz ensemble and, although recognisable as Ra - who else could think of, and then get away with, this - unlike any other Ra ensemble either. Ra makes the machines do amazing, visionary things while the band exercises restraint, remaining always in focus. In between, there are piano, saxophone, trumpet and drum vignettes, fresh and perfectly judged; this real was a fine band. This places the original vinyl release (and related releases, Sound Mirror and Disco 3000) back into the context of the concerts, from which they were drawn. An important addition to the Sun Ra canon, since it is a rare document of an unusual Ra project that produced three classic late 70s LPs. Beautifully packaged and well annotated.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Saturn Research 02. Constellation 03. Yera Of The Sun 04. Media Dreams 05. Twigs At Twilight 06. An Unbeknoweth Love 07. Friendly Galaxy 08. An Unbeknoweth Love 09. Of Other Tomorrows Never Known 10. Images 11. The Truth About Planet Earth 12. Space Is The Place 13. The Shadow World

20 - SUN RA - MY FAVORITE THINGS: OCTOBER 14TH, 1977 - (LP) 
COOL CULT


My Favorite Things October 14, 1977 presents a superb collection of tracks recorded by the great Sun Ra and his Arkestra at the Variety Recording Studio, NYC.

The performance shows that both are capable of masterfully reflecting the dynamic energy of the original recordings.

Touring the world with his formidable Arkestra, he represented and affirmed a new vision of Black history and culture, embodied and spread a new and powerfully influential Black philosophy, and revolutionised music with sounds from beyond the purple star zone.Ra accepted no limitation imposed on him by earthly powers: his vista was the universe, his travel was interplanetary, his music borne along the spaceways as he delivered messages of light to a sleeping world.
