Sun Ra - Atlantis Atlantis
Jazz New - LP AS 9239 Impulse
5 Stars! Sealed 1973 Gatefold 2nd Issue. Reissues The 1969 Saturn ESR 507 On Way Better Quality Vinyl With A Completely Different Version Of "Yucatan." Alternate Cover Art. Small Cut Out Hole. “Featuring The Astro Infinity Arkestra, Atlantis Reveals Two Very Distinct Sides Of Sun Ra's Music. The First Consists Of Shorter Works Ra Presumably Constructed For Presentation On The Hohner Clavinet. Not Only Is The Electric Keyboard Dominantly Featured, But Also It Presumably Offered Ra Somewhat Of A Novelty As It Had Only Been On The Market For Less Than A Year. The Second Side Consists Of The Epic 21-Minute Title Track And Features An Additional Seven-Man Augmentation To The Brass/Woodwind Section Of The Astro Infinity Arkestra. Tracks Featuring The Smaller Combo Reveal An Almost Introspective Arkestra. The Stark Contrast Between The Clavinet -- Which Ra Dubbed The "Solar Sound Instrument" -- And The Hand-Held African Congas On "Mu" And "Bimini" Reveal Polar Opposite Styles And Emphasis. The Original Issue Of Atlantis Was On The Small Independent Saturn Label. Thus The Composition Titled "Yucatan (Saturn Version)" Appeared On That Pressing. When The Disc Was Reissued In 1973 On Impulse!, The Track Was Replaced By A Completely Different Composition -- As Opposed To An Alternate Performance Of The Same Work. The Second Side Contains One Of Ra's Most Epic Pieces, Which Is Free Or "Space" Jazz At Its Most Invigorating. While Virtually Indescribable, The Sonic Churnings And Juxtaposed Images Reveal A Brilliant Display Of Textures And Tonalities Set Against An Ocean Of Occasional Rhythms. Its Diversity Alone Makes This Is An Essential Entry In The Voluminous Sun Ra Catalog.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details

Sun Ra - We Are In The Future We Are In The Future
Jazz Used - LP SJL 1141 Savoy Jazz
Beautiful 1984 Reissue. Appears Unplayed. “Sun Ra's Extensive Worldwide Catalog Often Includes Similar Releases Under A Variety Of Titles. We Are In The Future Is A Mid-'80s Repackaging Of The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra (1962). Regardless Of How It Is Presented, These Recordings Feature A Youthful And Intensive Solar Myth Science/Astro-Infinity Arkestra Who Had Very Recently Relocated From Chicago To New York City. The Compact Compositions And Swinging Tunes Lay Out A Typically Nimble Backdrop For The Singular, If Not Still Somewhat Futuristic Sounds Of Ra's Seminal Post-Bop Sides. Prominent Among These Platters Are Both Indelibly Off-Kilter Melodies And Tight Arrangements. This Is In Direct Contrast To The Decidedly Looser And Extended Free Jazz Incorporated Into Later Efforts Such As The Magic City (1966) And Atlantis (1969). When Recorded, Circa October Of 1961, Sun Ra Had Yet To Take The Leap Into Amplified Keyboards And Was Still On Piano, Affecting The End Result With Equivalent Measures Of Drama And Subtlety. A Prime Example Can Be Heard On The Bouncy And Ethereal "Bassism," As Much Of The Tune's Inherent And Palpable Beauty Comes From The Intimacy Of The Ensemble. This Is Especially True Of Marshall Allen's Haunting Flute Solo, Adding An Ambiance Of Mystery To The Hypnotic Swirl. The Undeniable Influence Of Thelonious Monk's Gorgeously Arithmetical Tone Clusters Is Evident Throughout "Of Sounds And Something Else." Just As Strong Are The Contributions From Pat Patrick (Trombone) And John Gilmore (Sax). Along With Other Seminal Efforts Such As Sun Song (1956) And Visits Planet Earth (1958), We Are In The Future Is An Essential Early Entry In The Artist's Voluminous 100-Plus Title Discography, Providing Insight Into His Remarkably Complex Musical Scores, Not To Mention The Equally Interesting Instrumentation Of The Solar Myth Science/Astro-Infinity Arkestra.” – Lindsay Planer, All Music Guide... more details

Sun Ra - Reflections In Blue Reflections In Blue
Jazz New - LP BSR 0101 Black Saint
Sealed (Just) 1987 Original Housed In A Laminated Jacket. “By The 1980s, Sun Ra Was Often Revisiting The Past In Eccentric Fashion. He Had Become Interested Again In The Music Of Fletcher Henderson And Early Duke Ellington, And Was Playing Occasional Standards In Concert, Although In Very Much His Own Way. His 14-Piece Arkestra Of 1986 On This Date Not Only Performs Demented Renditions Of "Say It Isn't So" And "Yesterdays" (Hinting At Swing While Often Including Borderline Outside Solos), But Originals That Sound Like Crazy Swing Tunes, Most Notably The Heated "Reflections In Blue" And "Nothin' From Nothin'." Certainly This Studio Set Is Not Recommended For Swing Purists Who Take Life Too Seriously, But The Creative And Often Crazy Music Should Delight Many Listeners. The Follow-Up Album, Hours After, Was Recorded During The Same Two Days.” Scott Yanow, AMG.... more details
 
Sun Ra - Sun Ra (Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra) Sun Ra (Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra)
Jazz Used - LP J 1348 Concert Hall
Rare 1961 French First Pressing Housed In A Laminated Jacket. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Very Slight Corner Bump. This Is The Equivalent Of His U.S. Savoy LP: "Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra." Sun Ra's Only Release For The Savoy Label Is A Gem. Recorded In October Of 1961, This Is Probably The First Recording The Arkestra Made After Arriving In New York. As Such, You're Dealing With A Smallish Arkestra (Seven Main Instrumentalists, Joined By Vocalist Ricky Murray On "China Gate") That's Still Playing The Boppish, Highly Arranged Music Characteristic Of The Chicago Years (1954-1961). Ra Sticks To Acoustic Piano For The Entire Session, But Various Percussion Instruments Are Dispersed Throughout The Band, Giving A Slightly Exotic Flavor To Some Of The Tunes. John Gilmore Plays Bass Clarinet On A Couple Tunes (As Well As Some Great Tenor Solos), And Marshall Allen's Flute Playing Is Excellent, As Always. This Album Was Produced By Tom Wilson, Who Also Produced The First Sun Ra LP, Jazz By Sun Ra (1956) For The Transition Label, Later Reissued By Delmark As Sun Song (Wilson Later Went On To Sign The Mothers Of Invention To Verve And "Electrified" Bob Dylan). With The Exception Of "The Beginning," All The Tunes Are Very Accessible. This Is One To Play For The Mistaken Folks Who Think The Arkestra Did Nothing But Make Noise. Excellent.” Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide.... more details
