Sun Ra
Other Strange Worlds

ROARATORIO

'There's always more Ra being issued than anyone can keep up with. But this one's essential. Don't skip it', writes Byron Coley. Ra, Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Art Jenkins and Ali Hasaan in Ra's flat, 1965.



Sun Ra Jazz In Silhouette
'The marvelous Jazz In Silhouette will surely some day be recognized as one of the most important jazz records since the war.' (Penguin Guide, which gives it a crown.) LPs from Dol and 180g Saturn facsimile.



Sun Ra Bad And Beautiful
The second NYC LP, from 1961, Ra on piano leading a three-saxes sextet away from the big-band Chicago sound, into the unknown. Plenty of Gilmore. Exotic Two is a terrific percussion-and-piano original.



Sun Ra Space Aura
Live in 1966, beamed down the same year as Strange Strings and Nothing Is. Ra's creep-show clavioline; Gilmore, Pat Patrick and Marshall Allen all outstanding. Fabulous sound, beautifully re-mastered.



Sun Ra Continuation
Late-sixties... with Marshall Allen on Jupiterian flute and Danny Thompson on Neptunian libflecto. 'Great slow blues, creepy space voice, very cool space-exotica, crazed circus fanfare and a cacophonous romp.'





Sun Ra The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra
'Space jazz reverie' is right. A seven-piece recorded by Tom Wilson for Savoy in 1961. Ra on piano; lots of great tunes. New Day is classic Arkestra bass, cymbals, hand percussion and Gilmore's bass clarinet.



Sun Ra On Jupiter
From 1979, and including UFO rumbustious disco, Arkestra-style, with solos from John Gilmore, Taylor Richardson, and Michael Ray (who also mixed the album, layering in pre-recorded material).



Sun Ra Sleeping Beauty
A 1979 studio recording one of Sun Ra's best-loved, funkiest records with John Gilmore at his greatest, and a bigger Arkestra than had just played the Moers festival. Vinyl from Kindred Spirits.



Sun Ra Disco 3000
Italy, 1978: John Gilmore, trumpeter Michael Ray, drummer Luqman Ali, Sun Ra on keyboards including a Crumar Mainman ('like a piano, organ, clavichord, cello, violin and brass instruments,' according to Ra).



Sun Ra It's After The End Of The World
Live at Donaueschingen and Berlin festivals in 1970, featuring Alan Silva, Leroy Taylor, Lex Humphries and co.




Sun Ra Nuits De La Fondation Maeght, Volume 1
From 1970. A duet sung by Ra and June Tyson; then keyboards announce Shadow World, with the full band featuring Marshall Allen. Finally, The Cosmic Explorer is a spectacular twenty minutes of Moog and various keys....




Sun Ra Cosmo Earth Fantasy
Two marvellous early-70s Saturns CEF and 'Sub Underground Series' ranging from lovely, intimate NY material (from 1962) to a 1974 live show, to the amazing titular Strange Strings variant, circa 1968.
