The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra - Sun Ra

The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra
A true innovator and a consummate showman, Sun Ra was the first to intigrate African rhythms, electronics and the moog synthesiser into jazz in the late fifties and early sixties when such eclecticism was unheard of. As a musical pioneer. Sun Ra has much in common with the likes of Frank Zappa, Can, John Cage and Michael Nyman and has long been classified more as psychedelic or progressive rock than mainstream jazz.

Sun Ra has one of the most collectable catalogues in the history of popular music and this timeless recording "The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra" from 1961 is both one of the accessible and most classic. Sun Ra's undiluted creativity has especially influenced the post-punk generation of Wire, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Public Image to whom he is hardly less than a god. The definitive eccentric genius of jazz, Sun Ra did not make it easy for people to take him seriously, for he surrounded his adventurous music with costumes and mythology that both looked backwards into ancient Egypt and forwards into science fiction.
