CD Reviews

A great CD with his more recognizable tunes
macfawlty | potomac, MD USA | 08/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is very accessible to most fairly new Sun Ra fans. It has a number of his often played tunes when he performed live. I have seen him 6 or so times over the years and a couple more with the Arkestra after his passing. With 25 or more of his records, I can highly recommend this one. If you are new to him, also look into the albums with recognizable jazz standards. Usually, the more songs on the CD, the more accessible it will be to the new Sun Ra fan."
A Genius At Work

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The live set from the early 1980s shows Sun Ra & His Arkestra covering a wide range of musical genres. But it is the rhythms and spacing of sounds that made Ra's performances so fascinating.

The solos drive D. 27, which leads to Sun Ra's exquisite piano composition, Blues Ra. The dimensions of the band are stretched in the closing songs, Round Midnight and Love in Outer Space/Space is the Place.

The CD was truly recorded live, which is a great relief. There are so many live albums from this period that were over-dubbed in the studio - even with crowd noise dropped in - that it is so fresh to hear actual live music recorded the way it was played before an audience.

The live set - while highly accessible - is only a sweet taste of the brilliant work he weaved for his fans.
