Commemorating what would have been the mythical Sun Ra’s 100th birthday; Strut Records teams up with Art Yard for an extensive compilation that draws from all corners of the legendary artist’s dizzying, 25-year discography. Compiled by the longest serving member of Ra’s set up and current figure head Marshall Allen, In The Orbit Of Ra showcases the best of Sun Ra in all his infinite incarnations. The soft, meandering flute on ‘Spontaneous Simplicity’ is a fine example of the liquid, improvisational jazz the Saturnite was capable off whereas the boundary breaching ‘Astro Black’ is the unit at their confrontational best. Complete with extensive interviews, photographs and remastered from the original tapes, this compilation curated from one of the men who knew him best is the perfect introduction or accolade to one of the most influential musicians of our time.
