SUN RA Reviews

SUN RA Astro Black

Album · 1973 · Avant-Garde Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
js
Sun Ra’s “Astro Black” came out in the early 70s when Ra was still heavily immersed in electronic sounds, and still a few years away from his re-interest in performing big band charts. This is the version of Sun Ra that appeals to those who discovered his music via psychedelic rock and fusion. There isn’t a lot of ‘jazz’ per se on “Astro Black”, but there are plenty of imaginative dronish jams with signature Sun Ra sounds and approaches. There is no acoustic piano in site on this one, as Ra devotes himself to synthesizer, organ and electric piano, and conjures up plenty of exotic sounds with this set up. There is an odd sound mix on here that heavily favors Ra and bassist Ronnie Boykins, but in many ways this makes perfect sense in that its Boykins’ repeating bass lines and Ra’s persistent electronics that frame these songs. The horn players and percussionists are free to come and go, while Ra and Boykins provide a constant backdrop. All the tracks on here are good, but possibly the best is “Hidden Spheres”, which opens with a very well recorded African percussion ensemble laying down a heated groove before the rest of the band joins in.

“Astro Black” makes for a good addition to any Sun Ra collection. Its not one of his best, but far not near his worst. The way in which the bass is used to anchor every track makes this one unique in the Sun Ra discog. Those casual fans who prefer the electronic Sun Ra will want to get this too, there are plenty of other worldly sounds on here.

Although he was born a mere earthling named Herman Poole Blount in the unassuming US state of Alabama in 1914, the future jazz master would claim to have had a visionary experience that transported him to Saturn and in the process transmogrified his very being into the more familiar musical legend SUN RA. He claims this happened around 1936 which is the period when the solar system was beginning its transformation from a third to fourth density process so certain carbon-based lifeforms very well could have had their DNA amplified in the process. Whatever the case, SUN RA was different than the rest and like all good aliens kept his secret identity well under wraps for the the next few decades while playing with the likes of Coleman Hawkins and Fletcher Henderson just to name a couple of the big talents of the 40s. Come the 1950s though and SUN RA was finally born (short for Le Sony’r Ra) and his Saturnian visions were allowed to take control. Although RA would skirt through the 50s somewhat under the radar fitting well into the world of hard bop and progressive big band, even at that stage he was somewhat of a fish out of water leaving his indelible stamp of idiosyncrasies on the jazz world.

Finally in 1957 the first SUN RA album was released although many other tracks were recorded dating back to the late 40s which would not be released until 1973’s compilation album “Deep Purple” (aka “Dreams Come True”) let them out of the vaults. Upon first pressing this debut was titled JAZZ BY SUN RA and appeared on the short-lived Transition Records and very much in a limited quantity complete with an extensive booklet of photos and liner notes. Ten years later many of the early recordings were purchased by Delmark Records and when this album was re-released in 1967 it was given the new title SUN SONG which it has been known as ever since. While both releases were faithful with tracks remaining in the same order, a feat not much adhered to in the early jazz years, the extra track “Swing A Little Taste” was added when a CD reissue finally arose in 1991. Even at this early stage SUN RA was calling his musical army of musicians THE ARKESTRA and incorporating strange unorthodox sounds, beats and rhythms to his take on jazz.

JAZZ BY SUN RA / SUN SONG shows a well-seasoned artist who was already an accomplished band leader and although his full alien potentials hadn’t quite drifted to the esoteric and space induced levels of the 60s, there is a lot that emerged askew from the normal status quo of late 50s bop and big band jazz. The ARKESTRA at this point consisted of a ten piece playing behind the great RA himself. Rhythmically and stylistically SUN SONG comes off mostly as a hard bop jazz ride but performed in big band style with the ensemble pumping out a parade of sax, trumpet and trombone riffs in a syncopated improvisational setting of swing. However, despite the first upbeat track ushering in a big band type of feel, the second “Call For All Demons” displays RA’s love of percussion hitherto unknown in the jazz world borrowing more from traditional African percussive rhythms than anything from the jazz scene of the day but even as the track begins sounding like something totally outside of the jazz world, the ARKESTRA effortlessly adapts the big band swing sound around these complex rhythms and intricate time signature workouts complete with RA’s jazz piano runs.

SUN SONG was produced by Tom Wilson, who at the time was a complete unknown in the music biz but went on to produce other top notch 60s acts such as Frank Zappa, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and even the Velvet Underground. While SUN SONG was not the album that made the great SUN RA stand out from his contemporaries in hind site it should have since it offers in plain site a completely new way of mixing rhythms, harmonies and dynamics shaded with jazz instrumentation and big band orthodoxies. SUN SONG is widely considered the most accessible SUN RA release where he showed he can play by the rules before he really went for it and then broke them. Far from struggling to fit into the then popular big band world of the era, SUN RA actually proves he can keep up with the greats of the era and throw in a multitude of his own ideas in the process. SUN SONG ranges from the upbeat swinging introductory track to the more intimate danceable numbers such as “Possession.” While not the appropriate place to begin to explore SUN RA’s most extraterrestrial musical offerings, SUN SONG / JAZZ BY SUN RA is an excellent place to hear how much of what would come to be was slowly unleashing itself within a more orthodox big band jazz context.

SUN RA The Sub-Dwellers

There was a time when Sun Ra recordings were rare and fans and collectors had to look far and wide in obscure places to locate them. Somewhere in the mid 80s, all this changed as certain small labels found there was a market for Ra’s strange music, and thus began an outpouring of all sorts of previously unreleased Sun Ra music, some of it of fairly dubious quality, which leads us to the 2011 archival release of “The Sub-Dwellers” on a vinyl LP. “The Sub-Dwellers” consists of recordings of Sun Ra reciting his poetry in a very low-fi setting. Hardcore Ra fans may find this interesting, but probably not too many others will.

Side one of “The Sub-Dwellers” was recorded in 1982, while side two was recorded in 1966. On side one, Ra’s voice is backed by incidental music played by synthesizers and the whole orchestra. The sound is ultra low-fi as it sounds like the music is coming from a portable cassette player that Ra may be holding while he recites his words. On side two the accompaniment seems to come from two or three performers on African instruments. The sound on side two is even more low-fi than the previous side. The poetry itself is an acquired taste, sometimes very clever and profound, while other times it seems like Ra may be pulling our leg. Much of Ra’s content has similarities to ancient holy books like the Bible, Koran or I Ching, other times he seems to delight in word play, almost child-like in its repetitive petulance, like Dr Suess run through an LSD blender.

There is definitely an audience for this future obscurity. First of course are fans of Ra’s poetry and collectors who need everything Ra ever recorded. Also, there are those who seek particularly odd recordings and low-fi field recordings who will find this record to be a treasure. Finally, home recording artists looking for a spoken word snippet to go on their latest spaced out groove will find plenty of quotable quotes on “the Sub-Dwellers”.

SUN RA Space Is the Place

Donning a tripped out headpiece and looking like a crazed cult leader flagging down the next comet to ride to another world, SUN RA takes his Astro Intergalactic Infinity Arkestra to strange musical places on this one-of-a-kind journey of excess called SPACE IS THE PLACE. Despite the name this is no space jazz or ambient album. This is some unusually unorthodox big band music here. First flight takes us to the 21 minute plus title track which sees the entire Arkestra taking turns gleefully shouting out the mantra “SPACE IS THE PLACE!” It is a fun and playful salute to the outer and inner galaxies that takes us on a parade through a minimalist rotisserie of strange variations throughout its entire run.

After that party is over we are suddenly plunged back to what sounds like a piano bar on the second track “Images.” It's a nice mellow track that is followed by another slightly more upbeat track called “Discipline.” Together these Earthly tracks bely the strangeness that is to come. Although they sound like more traditional jazz pieces, SUN RA is a master of mixing different styles of jazz with African drumming patterns which creates a totally unique and bizarre effect.

Time to head to space again with the avant-jazz sounds of “Sea Of Sounds.” This frenetic freaky piece is really out there and vaguely reminds me of the spastic horn solos of John Zorn, only this full Arkestra succeeds in weaving a spacey tripped-out tapestry of strange riffs that sound completely random but after close inspection patterns can be discerned as the instruments take turns emphasizing them. The next tripped-out musical outburst is the closer “Rocket Number Nine.” Here we get some strange keyboard solos that truly must have been channeled by aliens.

I have only heard a handful of SUN RA albums and this one is my favorite so far. Clearly this album shows me that this strange masterful musician is one of the great under-the-radar musical geniuses in musical history. His prolific output is daunting but after hearing masterpieces like this, it only makes me want to dive right in and see what other cosmic craziness awaits discovery.

SUN RA Monorails and Satellites

“Monorails and Satellites” is one more unique one in the Sun Ra discog in that it is possibly the only album that features him alone on the acoustic piano. Some of this album sounds like what you would expect from Sun, but there are some surprises too. The biggest revelation comes with the two opening numbers that sound less like improvised jazz, and more like modern concert hall pieces, Sun Ra style that is. Both of these pieces (“Space Towers” and “Cogitation”) feature harsh dissonant music that organically evolves in rhythmic structures that can recall a more discordant Bartok mixed with the noisy mathematically processed music of Iannis Xennakis. If these two pieces were transcribed, they would hold up well in a modern concert setting alongside the likes of Milton Babbit, Charles Ives and Henry Cowell. The remaining two cuts on side one (“Skylight” and “The Alter Destiny”) are more what you might expect from a Sun Ra piano album. Both sound like vaguely familiar jazz standards, but played in a very tipsy and off-kilter manner. Art Tatum on acid is a possible reference.

Side two continues with Sun Ra covering “Easy Street”, sometimes almost straight, but then veering off into humorous deconstructions. The following number, “Blue Differentials”, continues Sun Ra’s odd take on traditional jazz piano forms, but the rest of side two takes us into a much more personal musical vision. Its hard to describe the music on the closing numbers, (“Monorails and Satellites” and “The Galaxy Way”), longtime Sun Ra fans may recognize some of this, but when Ra goes this route, he sounds like no one else. These two iconic closers and the brilliantly constructed opening cuts make this a must have for Sun Ra fans.
