In the late '50s, Sun Ra emerged from big band to modern/progressive big band status, began to employ electronics, and used a more Afro-Centric percussive focus. This recording perfecly demonstrates those qualities, and more. There are several definitive themes from The Arkestra included, such as "Plutonian Nights," "Nubia," "Africa," "Watusa" and "Aethiopia." Dig for this one on vinyl from the Impulse LP reissue if you can (the cover art is stunning,) but it is nigh impossible to find on Saturn Research. If not, the Evidence CD combined with "Angels & Demons At Play" (containing the original graphics) will suffice.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost twelve years after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...
