Sun Ra Arkestra "Swirling" [2xLP Black Vinyl]

Label: Strut

Format: Vinyl LP

Genre: Jazz, Space Age, Cosmic Jazz, Big Band

The first new Sun Ra Arkestra release in over 20 years is a reason to rejoice! You should buy this record if for no other reason than the current leader is Marshall Allen, who at 96 has been leading this sci-fi jazz crew for decades now! You get new interpretations of some standards like "Angels and Demons at Play", "Satellites Are Spinning/Lights On A Satellite", and "Rocket No. 9" + another 10 songs!

It is mind blowing to hear these cats 50+ years later still making challenging, improvised, cosmic level sounds. Sun Ra passed away in 1993, I was lucky to see him and his Arkestra in the Summer of 1991! I still remember that show - we all went on a space trip that night. 


  • Slow Down Select - hand picked by Grover
  • Trying to get details on the vinyl but worth getting in stock for the pure legacy of the band. 
  • Strut generally does really good sounding vinyl.
