The 2nd volume of the Solar-Myth sessions! Recorded in New York in 1970, with an Arkestra that includes Kwame Hadi, Ali Hassan, Danny Davis, John Gilmore, and Clifford Jarvis – and instrumentation that includes moog, space dimension mellophone, ancient Egyptian Infinity drum, and lots of other weird percussion instruments. Longer titles are "The Utter Nots", "Scene 1, Take 1", and "Strange Worlds", and the whole thing's packaged in a glossy gatefold cover, with good photos of the band, and a good cover shot of Ra wearing cool goofy glasses!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Continuation
Saturn, 1963. New Copy (reissue)

Atlantis
Saturn, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible record from Sun Ra!

World Of Cecil Taylor
Candid, 1960. New Copy (reissue)

For The Good Times
Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of Rusty Bryant's last albums for Prestige – recorded in that more-electric mode that graced the label's albums of the year 1973 – but in a style that's still pretty darn nice!

Saturn, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
The first album on Saturn! Despite the futurism that the title of the set might imply, the material on this LP is actually some of Sun Ra's earliest, and dates back to the years when the Arkestra was first beginning to make itself heard in Chicago. That doesn't stop the material from being ... LP, Vinyl record album

Saturn, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic spooky bit of wild keyboard jazz from Ra! Night Of The Purple Moon was recorded in 1972 and Ra playing two different moogs, and his classic rocksichord – likely put to its most mind alteringly great use on this LP! John Gilmore, surprisingly enough, plays percussion, except on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Saturn, 1966. New Copy (reissue)

Iron Man
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s!

Your Mama Don't Dance
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Funky organ and plenty of vamping – a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard – who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard!
