Sun Ra Arkestra: Swirling


Exclusive Edition

Das erste neue Album seit über 20 Jahren wurde in Philadelphia aufgenommen und zeigt, wo das Arkestra unter Leitung des ebenfalls ehrwürdigen Marshall Allen steht, seit Sun Ra 1993 diesen Planeten verlassen hat. Das Album feiert Sun Ra´s Erbe mit neuen Arrangements von Klassikern wie “Angels And Demons At Play”, “Satellites Are Spinning”, “Door Of The Cosmos” und “Rocket No. 9” neben eher unbekannten Juwelen. Der feurige, aus den Ra-Archiveb von Allen gehobene Blues “Darkness” ist hier zum ersten Mal zu hören, ausserdem eine epische Version von “Seductive Fantasy” (erstmals auf “On Jupiter” 1979 aufgenommen), die wilde Freejazz-Soundbombe “Infinity/I’ll Wait For You” und, als Premiere, Marshall Allen´s Swing-Komposition “Swirling”. Das Line-Up des Albums besteht aus langjährigen Arkestra-Mitgliedern wie Danny Ray Thompson (RIP), Michael Ray, Vincent Chancey, Knoel Scott, Cecil Brooks, Atakatune (RIP), Elson Nascimento und Tyler Mitchell.

Limited pressing of 300 copies! (clear Vinyl) The planets align this October as the mighty Sun Ra Arkestra, under the direction of the maestro Marshall Allen, release their first studio album in over twenty years, ‘Swirling’. Recorded at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia, the new recording represents the continuation of a heartfelt rebirth of the Arkestra under Allen’s guidance since Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, gaining new generations of followers from their regular touring across the globe. With a big band line-up featuring long-standing Arkestra members including Danny Ray Thompson (rip), Michael Ray, Vincent Chancey, Knoel Scott, Cecil Brooks, Atakatune (rip), Elson Nascimento and Tyler Mitchell, the album is a full-blooded celebration of Sun Ra’s legacy. Tracks include brand new arrangements of Arkestra staples ‘Angels And Demons At Play’, ‘Satellites Are Spinning’, ‘Door Of The Cosmos’ and ‘Rocket No. 9’ alongside lesser known gems; the rousing blues ‘Darkness’ is recorded here for the first time, resurrected from the Ra archives by Marshall Allen. Other highlights include an epic version of ‘Seductive Fantasy’ (first recorded on Ra’s ‘On Jupiter’ LP in 1979), the freeform sonic blast of ‘Infinity / I’ll Wait For You’ and a first ever recording of the Marshall Allen swing composition, ‘Swirling’. “We truly hope that this recording brings much joy to a planet which is so deeply in need of a spirit sound and vibration,” states saxophonist Knoel Scott. “We hope it contributes to a change in the ominous direction of man’s journey through the cosmos.” “This new release is the Arkestra’s love offering to the world,” concludes Marshall Allen. “Beta music for a better world.”
