- sun ra all stars: milan, zürich, west berlin, paris
(2008, 5cd, usa, transparancy 0311)
October and November 1983, Sun Ra toured Europe with his Sun Ra All Stars band. The band was called "All Stars" because it included Lester Bowie on trumpet, Don Cherry on trumpet and Archie Shepp on tenor and soprano saxophones. Add Marshall Allen and John Gilmore and the "All Stars" label seems appropriate.
5 CDs of great material with high energy jazz improvisations.
This impressive box came out last year on Transparancy.
