This is by far my new favorite Sun Ra album. Previously Space is the Place and "Cosmic Tones .." I thought were the best... but wow I got this and am floored. If you don't have this and you like Sun Ra you are LOOSING out !!!!

Awaken to the Sounds of Spring 2 Oct. 2008
By Best Of All - Published on
Format: Audio CD
With up to 28 musicians - including both acoustic and electric bass, electric guitarists and the signature reed and brass sections - Sun Ra is delving into groove-orientated performances in this 1979 release.

The title track is the centerpiece, with Sun Ra's introduction on electric piano and the band then setting a mystical foundation for the vocals, led by June Tyson. Springtime Again and Door of the Cosmos have a sublime beauty which transcends time and place.

As if the vestiges of winter has finally given way to spring, there is a freshness of outlook and vision in the music which makes the album a gem in the vast Sun Ra discography.

the best Sun Ra you'll ever hear 9 May 2010
By Peter A. Fiore - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews but this cd is amazing. the band is under full control and the arrangements are exciting. Gilmore is all over the place and Ra's obbligatos are the best ever. "Springtime Again" is one of the most beautiful songs you'll ever hear. the chants are wonderful and Gilmore's solo ranks with
anything that's ever been recorded--Coleman Hawkins "Body and Soul," Trane's "Flamenco Sketches, Charles Llyod's "Forest Flower". It's exquisite. get this cd now.

Deep Groove And Melody 4 Dec. 2010
By Scott McFarland - Published on
Format: Audio CD
One of the great underheard Saturns, now available on CD. Like "Lanquidity" and "On Jupiter", Ra here takes his band towards late-night "quiet storm" groove. The grooves are deep and the melody sweet, you'll rarely hear music as great in those two ways at the same time. The performances slowly boil. This is somewhere near musical perfection. The only downer is his sexist intonation during the title track, and it really is a downer to me, like a line drawn through the middle of a great painting.

Companion to Strange Celestial Roads 4 Jun. 2009
By T. Boves - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Art Yard has been reissuing lost Saturn albums in beautiful packages and with great sound quality. Sleeping Beauty might be considered one of the least 'heavy' albums Sun Ra has ever released. Recorded in one session with Strange Celestial Roads, Sleeping Beauty features mellow grooves and sing along lyrics. A joy for the mind and the heart. Strongly recommended! Get it while you can.
