Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity ArkestraIntergalactic Thing (with download) ... LP
Roaratorio, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $37.99
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra – pulled from four different sessions recorded at the group's Philadelphia home in 1969 – and every bit as impressive as the Saturn Records material from the time! The recording quality is great – these aren't random snippets of sounds caught on a cassette – and Ra's really trying out some new ideas with the Arkestra – sometimes working in highly percussive modes that feel like a late 60s update of the exoticism of the group in their final Chicago years – sometimes bringing in more electric elements, as Ra himself plays both Farfisa and a Hohner clavinet – no piano at all! Other players include the mighty John Gilmore on tenor, Doug Williams on trumpet and "space dimension mellophone", Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on altos and flutes, Danny Ray Thompson on alto, James Jacson on percussion – and all other members of the group play percussion too – which makes for plenty of percussive moments! Notes are by Robert Campbell – the Sun Ra expert – and titles include "The Others From Another World", "Discipline Of The Pharoahs", "Latent Friends", "Moon Over Saturn", "Principles Of The Pharoahs", "Calling Out To Saturn", "Exotic Forest", "Do The Intergalactic Thing", and "Saturn Moon".

Nu BandFinal Concert ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2012. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the last performances of the mighty trumpeter Roy Campbell Jr – working here in the excellent Nu Band, which hosted some of the best moments of his late musical life! The group's got a spirited sense of energy that comes both from the drums of co-creator Lou Grassi, and the wonderfully deep bass work of Joe Fonda – who often has this pulse, or sometimes rolling quality, and gives the music a sort of beating heart, which allows both Roy and the alto of Mark Whitecage to really take off on some freely exploratory solos. Yet the group also comes together with a more structured approach at some of the best moments – really holding onto the great legacy of spiritual sounds that Campbell has given us – especially on the beautiful long track "Lament For Billy Bang", which is maybe worth the price of the record alone. Other titles include "Free Piece", "Like A Spring Day", and "In The Whitecage". LP, Vinyl record album
