St. Louis Blues – Solo Piano

CD (Item 580097) Improvising Artists Inc (Italy), 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

Ra plays solo on his own compositions – "Sky & Sun", "I Am We Are I", "Thoughts On Thoth" – plus some real "old timey" stuff, like "Honeysuckle Rose", "St. Louis Blues", and "Three Little Words". His playing, as always, is extremely compelling, and a record like this is a good chance to hear what a great player he is, which you don't always get in some of the larger Arkestra sessions. Very spare, but very haunting as well.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

An amazing live date from Sun Ra & The Arkestra – recorded in Cairo in 1971, with a very transcendent sound overall! Ra and the group are clearly inspired to be working in the shadow of the pyramids – and their music sometimes has Eastern overtones, a bit in the manner of Salah ... CD
ESP/ZYX (Germany), 1973. Used
One of Sun Ra's most striking albums of the 70s – a live session recorded in honor of the passing of the comet Kohoutek, and featuring some of the most cosmic work the Arkestra recorded at the time! Ra himself is on synthesizer, playing with a heavily electronic sound – and really ... CD

Atlantis
Saturn/Evidence, 1960. Used
An incredible record from Sun Ra! The session was recorded in New York in the late 60s – and it features Ra playing the "solar sound instrument", which is actually a modified Hohner Clavinet, used here with some really spooky sounds! The setting of the album is spare and moody ... CD
Saturn/Evidence, Late 50s. Used
2 lost classics by Sun Ra on one CD! Visits Planet Earth features music that was recorded by The Arkestra in Chicago in 1957 and 1958. Some of the tracks are from the same session as the Sound Of Joy LP, and a few others were from sessions later in the year. Ra plays piano and "solar ... CD

Mayan Temples
Black Saint (Italy), 1990. Used
Sun Ra's made the move here from Egyptian pyramids to Mayan temples – but the sound is every bit as cosmic and compelling as ever! The album's one of Ra's last – a studio set recorded in Italy in 1990, and one that draws strongly from the tightening of tradition the Arkestra ... CD

Impulse, 1972. Used
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, ... CD

Quite a nice little album from Pharoah – the kind of session we always overlooked when we were digging for Impulse titles, and which we're now going back to, and almost appreciating more than the classic ones! The album's a quartet session – recorded live, of course – with a ... CD
