Overview

Release Date:01/13/2017;Notes:Limited seven inch vinyl pressing. Shining sounds from the dawn of the Sun Ra Arkestra. 'El is A Sound of Joy' was recorded in 1956 and appeared the following year on the very first Saturn LP, Super-Sonic Jazz. Incredible is the fact that saxophonist Charles Davis, here providing the soulful baritone anchor line (counterpoint to Sun Ra's formidable left hand), remains in the front-line of today's Sun Ra Arkestra directed by Marshall Allen. Shuffle swing breakdown jets leisurely, casually, masterfully, painting lush, post-modern impressions of ancient future worlds, of space, of time... of Chicago's elevated trains... Reaching for the sky, for Joy... The Joy coda dovetails magically into the intro theme of 'Black Sky And Blue Moon', before downshifting into another dimension of romantic outrospection. We follow The Nu Sounds, aka Cosmic Rays, on a faraway journey to the land of late-50s Chicago singing groups, the Arkestra supporting with quiet grace, pulsing in Nubians of Plutonia mode. An uncanny blend of antique blackness and bright satellites, ethereal voices perfectly in tune thanks to Ra's disciplined coaching (plus Modern Harmonic's expert remastering), their sweet dynamics and exact harmonics are crystal clear. Flute solo from Marshall Allen. Hearts swelling like the full moon, ripening in the darkness to the point of bursting.;Track List:1. El Is a Sound of Joy;2. Black Sky and Blue Moon
