Product Description

(2-CD set) 111 minutes of Sun Ra recorded on March 28, 1980. This concert heavily features Sun Ra's piano, surrounded by lots of vocals and tasteful horns. From solo blues and lounge on up to a soaring ten-piece big band sound. Of such high recording quality that it sounds like a missing studio album!

5.0 out of 5 stars When Sun Comes Out 26 Aug. 2010
By Best Of All - Published on

The soundboard quality of the 22 tracks that clock in a few ticks under 1:52 make the 2-CD set recorded on March 28, 1980, in Rome, Italy, quite appealing for even the most casual collector of the vast live library of Sun Ra.

Vocalist June Tyson is the standout, as her range and stunning stage presence are captured on "Astro Black," "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise/Mr. Mystery," "Space is the Place/We Travel the Spaceways" and "Nothing Is." Sun Ra spans the artistic universe on piano and keyboards, though his work on "Mr. Mystery" leaves an indelible mark. There is heavy emphasis on the rhythms projected by drummers Eric Walker and Chris Henderson, with ample solo space provided for Michael Ray (trumpet), Marshall Allen (alto sax, flute, oboe), Noel Scott (alto and baritone sax, percussion), John Gilmore (tenor sax, percussion), Danny Ray Thompson (baritone sax, flute) and Kenny Williams (tenor and baritone sax, percussion). The flutes on the first track - which is not titled - seem to be channeling the beauty of Newet.

Released on the independent label Transparency, the textures in the performance emit rays of hope and optimism to all who listen.
