Sun Ra - Sleeping Beauty (USA 1979)

More Sun Ra

Here is another one from the "Art yard in a Box" set. Three extended tracks with the title track being the longest. This is Sun Ra with some actual melody, I read someone said accessible, Well... This is Sun Ra, it still sounds pretty messy on the surface and quite loose but there are some good grooves here and  some cool brass. My favourite is Door To The Cosmos, with a real cool "Funkedelic" type beat and some great brass that really turns me on and the chant is one of the coolest, but way too short. Another album that sounds disappointing on first contact but soon reveals some wonderful secrets on further exposure. Rating 3.5/5.
