Sun Ra - The Nubians of Plutonia (USA Saturn SR 9956-11E/F (c. 1966))

Sun Ra Album Of The Week

Still in the late 50's with this collection and A mighty impressive set it is. The highlights are the first two tracks which take Jazz in a direction it may have not been before. "Plutonian Nights" just blows me away with it's magic sax melody. "Star Time" is a great swinging more conventional number before side B get all percussive with some classic Ra tracks. I have been coming back repeatedly to this album this week when I should be checking out the other's in my playlist. A great Sun Ra record and Rates at 4.5/5.
