Ligeti Posted November 18, 2014 Report Share Posted November 18, 2014 Well, I am very late to the Sun Ra party. I was listening to Jazz for a long time before getting a taster of Ra's music. I stumbled upon a documentary on him, and was interested from the get go. I started by ordering the Artyard in a Box release, and went from there. I bought some of his work for Evidence, but didn't find that so much to my liking - I like my Sun Ra wild. Give me some Outer Spaceways Incorporated, is what I'm saying. To contradict myself immediately, the one release I constantly go back to though is Lanquidity. It's not too challenging, but it really works on every level. I've still got mountains of Sun Ra to sample, he strikes me as a performer who was all things to all men. He can groove, he can clay it straight, he gets wild. Also his discography is frighteningly large. With no expectation of owning it all, I'll try to funnel my funds and time into the edgier stuff.
