Product Review:

Marshall Allen Presents Sun Ra And His Arkestra* - In The Orbit Of Ra is a masterful compilation of some of the most innovative and influential jazz music ever created. Led by visionary composer and bandleader Sun Ra, the Arkestra has been pushing boundaries since the 1950s, creating a unique blend of hard bop, avant-garde jazz, space-age and big band sounds.

This double album captures some of their best work from across their career; from classic songs like 'The Lady With The Golden Stockings' to mind-bending explorations such as 'Astro Black', it's an astonishing journey through sound that never fails to astound. The compositions are often complex yet deeply groovy, with layers of rhythm and melody that entice you deeper into their world with each listen.

In The Orbit Of Ra is essential listening for anyone interested in exploring the outer limits of jazz music; it's a timeless testament to Sun Ra's genius and an invaluable snapshot of his Arkestra at its creative peak.
