I have been listening to Bad and Beautiful for 30 years.
The title track is the theme song from the movie, and it features a wonderful arrangement by Sun in which the tenor and flute share the melody. It has a very optimistic and careful pace with an ending that leaves you hanging.
Ankh is the ROOTS! Sun recorded it earlier on Delmark, here it is a bit darker and has an otherworld vibe. Just In Time, a nice standard with tenor blowing by John Gilmore. Gilmore was a wonderful tenor who hopefully will not be forgotten. Search Light Blues is another title; it evokes a dark, stormy mood. This music represents a battle of the elements, a lonely voice in the distance in danger of being washed away by the waves. Sun really knew how how to use those diminished chords.
The music world can only thank Sun Ra for all of the beautiful music he made. Those who hear him will remember him. Will you?
