4.0 out of 5 stars Languid cosmic vibes, 20 Sep 2008

This review is from: Sleeping Beauty (Audio CD)
Blissful easy-soul vibe from Mr Ra: electric bass and guitar, electric piano and vibes, soothing water-wash vocals. The tracks build around swinging, lazy riffs, as much about colour, vibe and atmosphere as theme-solos-theme (though there is nice trumpet and sax work). 'The Door of the Cosmos' is the most dance-like, the other two trot along more lazily: the title track in particular sticks in your head, Ra's gently mysterious vocals towards the end stroking the sounds around, the intergalactic magician gently waving his wand as things slide into being (and dig that gently yelping muted trumpet, sonic magic if ever I heard it). Not a challenging listen at any stretch (and only a little over 30 minutes long), but no less authentic Ra for that.

"I wanna speak of...black beauty to you...I wanna speak of...black beauty to you...Mmmhmmm...mmmhmmm....mmmmhmmm...sleeping beauty sleeping beauty sleeping...sleeping beauty sleeping beauty sleeping..."

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 !!!!
