The astonishing session that went light years beyond “free jazz” improvisation to create music of deeply felt, explosive and gentle gestures made from sound itself without reference to previous notions of melody or harmony. This set of tracks finds Sun Ra breaking ground by using synthesizers and having the Arkestra musicians double on percussion. Come with Sun Ra’s original self-created jacket art.
