Sun Ra – “Secrets of The Sun ” – [Atavistic (Unheard Music)]

Atavistic???s 2008 re-issue of this little known Sun Ra Saturn recording from the early 1960???s. Ra on piano, sun harp and gong is his usual goofy brilliant self. Other fine ???usual suspect??? sidemen such as John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Ronnie Boykins. I was especially impressed by Calvin Newborn (brother of pianist Phineas Newborn) on guitar on track 1 and 7.

Of KFJC???s large selection of Sun Ra???s music, this could be my favorite.
