The Night of the Purple Moon - Sun Ra,Sun Ra & His Intergalactic Infinity Orchestra

Ra fronts a quartet playing nothing but miniMoog and Rocksichord, along with Stafford James on electric bass, Danny Davis on alto, clarinet, flute, and bongos, and John Gilmore on drums! Gilmore has a skittering approach to the drums, which are curiously mic'ed with the hi-hat being especially prominent. Ra's playing doesn't get too far out, although the tones of the Rocksichord and miniMoog are rather humorous, and most of the tunes are quite playful.

Davis provides some fine alto, clarinet, and a number of freak-outs, with James anchoring the proceedings. Davis and Gilmore switch roles for "Impromptu Festival" for a taste of Gilmore's tenor while "Dance of the Living Image" has Gilmore on drums and Davis on bongos.

The music on the LP was credited to "The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale," but in fact the band was one of the greatest uncredited session combos of all time, including the core of Sun Ra's Arkestra and Al Kooper's Blues Project. To keep the music licensing fees to a minimum, all the tracks were based on public domain items like Chopin's Polonaise Op. 53, the horn theme from Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony and the love theme from Romeo and Juliet, and generic rock riffs. It's all instrumental, with the exception of Robin's Theme (MP3), featuring an uncredited vocalist who I hope some reader will be able identify.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUN RAMay 22d would’ve been the 97th birthday of the great bandleader, composer, and pianist Sun Ra.

The Eternal Myth Revealed, Vol. 1 - Sun Ra

The Eternal Myth Revealed, Vol. 1 was carefully curated, assembled, annotated, and sequenced by official Sun Ra Music Archive head Michael D. Anderson and issued on his Transparency Records imprint. It traces the musical roots of Sun Ra from his earliest years up to the end of the 1950s. This is accomplished via interviews and narration by Ra, his sidemen, musicologists, historians, and other Sun Ra aficionados, as well as presenting musical selections by Ra's many influences, his contemporaries, and his own early recordings as both an artist and producer, not only in jazz, but in rhythm & blues, doo wop, poetry, blues, and more.

SUN RA’S INTERGALACTIC RESEARCH ARKESTRA The Netherlands 1971 [No label, 3CD]Live at Technische Hogeschool, Nieuwe Aula, Delft, The Netherlands, November 11, 1971. From a 2001 VPRO radio broadcast. A very good recording. He was going “there”. But first, there was one gig to play in The Netherlands. As with music by free jazz improvisers, song titles are sometimes hard to come by. Space, intergalactic and satellites conjure up the vastness of Sun Ra’s musical palette. Set the controls for the heart of the sun. Thanks to zyxrion for the song titles.

As with the Showboat Lounge show (now in Cosmic Rays), I did my best to divide it into the appropriate tracks. As with any of these audience recordings, I have to be somewhat curious about the accuracy of the date - this recording includes 'Love in Outer Space' which is not listed in Campbell/Trent as being played on this date.

Sun Ra - The Antique Blacks (1978) Sun Ra - The Nubians of Plutonia (1959) My favorite music captures my fantasies and taps into mind worlds created by my subconscious, filling in the details on experiences never fully lived. Sun Ra, being one of my favorite locksmiths, has kindly opened many of these perceptual doors for me. The Nubians of Plutonia, like many of Ra's works, is extremely percussive for jazz, bringing unsubtle, yet deceptively nimble rhythms to the forefront.

Notice the bells and hard-hitting toms in Watusa - also notice the similarity to Brubeck's Take Five except in 6/8 rather than the notorious, infamous 5/8. Africa is a great example of a real transporter of a track. I don't know if it's possible to listen to this song without dissociating from reality and having Ra's thoughts plastered all over your retinas.

The discord of Aiethopia and Africa, in contrast with the upbeat progressive big band sound of Plutonian Nights, shows Ra's all encompassing genius, as all of these songs unquestionably bear his mark.
