• sun ra arkestra Reflections In Blue / Hours After (double LP, £23.75)

    label: get back

    On 18-19 December 1986, Sun Ra and a 13-piece Arkestra took to the studio, recording the material for two full-length LPs: Reflections In Blue and its follow up Hours After, in back to back sessions. Here Ra and a particularly inspired Arkestra featuring John Gilmore, Randall Murray and Tyrone Hill, careen crazily through a mix of radically reelaborated jazz standards like "Yesterdays", "Say It Isnt So" and "But Not For Me", and a handful of inspired Ra originals (i.e. "Reflections In Blue", "Hours After", " Dance Of The Extra Terrestrians"). While Reflections in Blue was released on the Black Saint label soon after, Hours After was not released until 1989. The material for both LPs were recorded at Jingle Machine Studio, Milan, Italy. Tracks - Side A: 1. State Street Chicago 2. Nothin From Nothin 3.Yesterdays Side B: 1. Say It Isnt So 2. I Dream Too Much 3. Reflections In Blue Side C: 1. But Not For Me 2. Hours After 3.
