- Space Aura by Sun Ra & His Band From Outer Space
8/10 Aaron 12th August 2014
The world of Sun Ra is a dense sonic landscape, kind of like listening to Jamaican music, once you 'get it' it become a rewarding sonic obsession. This 10", whilst short, still delivers over 15 minutes of prime 'transitional' period Ra work - by transitional, I mean that period where his more loungey, almost exotica jazz gave way to the weirder, more intense free-jazz with strange electronics period, best heralded in via the 'Concert for Comet Kahoutek' piece and Mr. Ra's Moog infused explorations of the late 60s through to the 80s..
For vinyl, it sounds fantastic, at almost 'audiophile' level, how they did this, who knows? The only gripe I have is that it's simply a 10", as a SunRa freak I demand at least 40+ minutes of unadulterated Ra goodness!! Either way, the sonics on this deliver I JUST NEED MORE!!
