Sun Ra - Monorails & Satellites (USA 1968)

The Sun Ra Discography.

A reasonably rare event in the Sun Ra cannon is a solo piano album, but that is exactly what we have here and although it is not one that I would go all gooey over, I do like to hear him solo. I always enjoy his far out solo's on many of the Archestra recordings although there isn't too much of the really way out stuff here, there is some good stuff to wrap your ears around that is a little less than conventional.
With so much less happening on a solo recording it becomes much easier to stay with the playing even when it gets weird and I find it quite absorbing. A good record and a bit more accessible. Rating 3.5/5.
