Boomkat Product Review:
Vibrant recordings of Sun Ra & Arkestra live on Egyptian TV at at Hartmut Geerkens’ house in Cairo, 1971, resurfacing for first time in 43 years thanks to their acolytes at Strut.
Returning to a vital source of energies appears to fuel Sun Ra & His Astro-Galactic-Infinity-Arkestra to some of their most striking and praised work here, neatly interspersed with rare interview recordings, to paint an unmissable portrait of the legendary Afro-futurist and sonic fictional protagonists at a peak of their astral jazz powers.
This is the first part of the original, seminal ‘Egypt’ session and it’s a chaotically live-o throwdown, knocking it out of orbit with Ra’s blistering synth-organ rays illuminating ‘Solar Ship Voyage’, and collided with the full band in roiling motion on ‘Cosmo-Darkness’ and ‘The Light Thereof’, whereas ‘Friendly Galaxy No.2’ plays into their more charmingly consonant styles, and ’To Nature’s God’ and ‘Why Go To The Moon?’ get down for inimitable, exemplary shots of Afro-Latin-Jupiterian groovers’ hustle .
