Modern Harmonic is about to release an album that will put June Tyson in the spotlight !
THE VOICE OF AFROFUTURISTIC SCIENCE NON-FICTION!
Undoubtedly the most sublime constellation in the Sun Ra cosmos, June Tyson’s voice is the perfect guide through one of the most challenging and varied musical legacies ever to be encountered. Capable of strong, fierce, and emotive vocalizations as well as intricate weavings, her voice transcends genre. This first ever collection affirming June Tyson’s unassailable gravity in Sun Ra’s realm features previously unissued cuts and includes a full color zine-style insert featuring rare photos and extensive liner notes!
The strong, powerful and fiercely feminine voice of Sun Ra’s Arkestra for decades was the strong, sassy and spacey June Tyson. As Sun Ra’s closest companion throughout his time on Earth, she represented Afrofuturism as boldly and powerfully as her Saturnic leader. He the king of Afrofuturism and she the queen. The zine style insert is externally a replica of one of June’s personal items, her “Dream Book”; open the composition pad to unveil stunning unseen photos courtesy of June’s daughters and a powerful set of notes from Cat Celebreze.
Finally the Princess Leia of avant-garde jazz gets her due. Mastered by Joe Lizzi, cut at Cohearent Audio by Kevin Gray and pressed on stocking gold vinyl at Third Man.
Also available on CD.
