InfoLP

The astonishing sessions that went light years beyond "free jazz" improvisation to create music of deeply-felt, explosive and gentle gestures made from sound itself without reference to previous notions of melody or harmony. This set of tracks finds Sun Ra breaking ground by using synthesizers and having the Arkestra musicians double on percussion. Re-pressed for its 50th Anniversary in a limited edition on Esperanto-green, 180-gram vinyl housed within Sun Ra's original, self-created jacket art.
