- sun ra: in some far place - roma '77
(2016, 2lp+2cd, ger, strut/art yard strut122lp)
Strut Records and the Art Yard record label released a Sun Ra album on the most recent Record Store Day (April 16, 2016).
"In Some Far Place, Rome '77" catches Sun Ra in concert with Luqman Ali on drums and Thomas Thaddeus on vocals. This can almost be considered a solo piano concert.
Sun Ra in trio is quite something different compared to the energy of a full Arkestra. Still, this is worth checking out.
Blues, jazz, experimental soundscapes, it's all there.
I really like the piano versions of classic Arkestra tunes like 'Space Is The Place' and 'Calling Planet Earth' to name just two.
This 2 LP vinyl set also includes a 2 CD set (with the same material) for those who also enjoy music on their digital toys.
