Interplanetary Remixes [coll] – [Wfmu]

Max Level   1/30/2012   CD, Jazz

Our friends at WFMU put their own spin on Sun Ra’s music with a wide variety of results. He is a good candidate for remixing because that loose space shuffle of his always seems to have plenty of room in it for just about anything: skronky saxophones, June Tyson’s distinctive vocals, odd dialogue and spoken word passages, doo-wop, Batman clips, some droning things… His spirit and energy pervade these tracks no matter what WFMU’s intrepid remixers came up with. Obviously a labor of love, the music mutated but with respect for the original, and I think Sun Ra would have appreciated it.
