His thrilling Zulu-label 45s — the distillation of the sound on both recently-revived LPs — in Japanese-style packaging. Ra vs. Kool And The Gang brass, Black Jazz vibes, amplified thumb-piano and African drums.
The Ra trumpeter and the Hypnotics’ dad tearing it up live in 1968. The composition is inspired by a reading of the revolutionary, cosmic musical legacy of the Moors. Grooving, fiery stuff.
Recorded at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago in 1993, soon after the death of Sun Ra. Spaced out, utterly beautiful, hushed and intimate, with fine harp and Frankiphone playing by Cohran.
The definitive edition of the 1968 spiritual jazz masterpiece, reissuing the complete concert for the first time ever.
