sun ra - Disco 3000 (2012 Edition)

*A ltd edition reissue in dramatic new, orange dayglo packaging of the double full-session version of the legendary Saturn classic* A single CD issue of the infamous Sun Ra concert recorded at the Teatro Ciak in Milan, Italy, on January 23rd 1978, Disco 3000 features playing from John Gilmore (tenor sax, drums and vocals), Luqman Ali (drums and vocals) and Michael Ray (trumpet and vocals) with Ra spreading himself between piano, organ, moog, "rhythm machine" and vocals. On Disco 3000 Sun Ra alloys his star-gazing free-jazz tendencies with the intoxicating rumble of electronic music, From the arping bloops and introductory chug of primitive drum machines during the twenty-six minute title track to the shimmering electronic tones lacing 'Dance Of The Cosmo-Aliens' there's no shying away from the idiom of experimental music's future, but for all that, fine performances and unencumbered musicianship remain at the heart of this record's success, as brilliantly illustrated on 'Third Planet, where Gilmore and Ali really shine.
