Sun Ra Arkestra – “Live At The Paradox” – [In and Out]
Sun Ra might have returned to Saturn, but the Arkestra lives on. This album was recorded live in the Netherlands in 2008 with the Arkestra under the direction of Marshall Allen. Tracks vary from free jazz to swing to straight ahead to a classic big band sound, all with the off-key goofiness we expect. I especially enjoyed Farid Barron on piano.
