- sun ra: sun song
(1990, cd, usa, delmark d-411)
Here's another classic Sun Ra release.
"Sun Song" is a re-release of the very first Sun Ra album. At first, it was entitled"Jazz By Sun Ra", and it got released in 1957!
Sun Ra, John Gilmore, Julian Priester,... in 1957!
This is a perfect match to "Visits Planet Earth" and "Interstellar Low Ways", as it lets you hear how Sun Ra's music sounded it the fifties.
Beautiful Sun Ra compositions, combined with some great jazz tunes like 'Possession' (Harry Revel) and 'Lullaby For Realville' (Richard Evans), make this an extraordinary release.
Another essential Sun Ra release.
