Thanks for the music education, my brothers. My jazz knowledge is sparse indeed, especially with Bop. They say Larry Neal was the Last of the Boppers. But that title might rightfully belong to Sun Ra. These early pieces by Sun Ra I have only heard about them. I am only familiar with the Arkestra sounds. Kalamu and Mtume, you are a mighty duo. — Rudy

From Szwed’s bio on Sun Ra-

“Sun Ra’s consistent statement,” Baraka said, “musically and spoken is that this is a primitive world. Its practices, beliefs, religions, are uneducated, unenlightened, savage, destructive, already in the past…That’s why Sun Ra returned only to say he left. Into the future. Into Space.”

At the end of a full week of bad news, when my opinion of the world in which we live was starting to slip, Ra’s music as always seems to provide some enlightenment and positive feeling for the future – thanks for the track – loved it!
