Sun Ra - Lanquidity (USA 1978)

Just arrived.

The late 70s were an interesting time for Sun Ra Fans in that he integrated a lot of the current "Black music styles" in to his recordings and so we have albums influenced by Disco and Funk and this set which leans heavily towards the Jazz/Fusion of the early 70s. This makes for one of the more accessible Ra albums and a good one for those who struggle with his more esoteric stuff. I think it is a great set and the recording quality is one of the best I have heard in the vast Ra discography. Rating 4.5/5.
