Product Review:

Sun Ra's Singles Volume 2 (The Definitive 45s Collection 1962-1991) is a compilation of some of the most innovative and genre-defying music ever created. Spanning three decades, this collection offers a unique insight into the musical genius of Sun Ra and his Arkestra.

From hard bop to avant-garde jazz, Sun Ra's music is truly otherworldly – often reflecting his own fascination with space and science fiction. His use of synthesizers, horns, strings and percussion create an atmosphere that is both captivating and alienating – transporting the listener to another realm entirely.

Whether it's the freeform funk rhythms on 'Space Lonliness' or the cosmic soundscapes on 'Enlightenment', each track offers something special which makes this compilation essential listening for any fan of jazz or experimental music. The 3LP set also includes some lesser known gems from Little Mack (2) & Pat Patrick as well as solo works from Sun Ra himself such as 'Sky Blues' & 'I Am The Instrument'.

In short, Singles Volume 2 is an absolute must have for anyone looking to explore the vast sonic universe created by one of jazz’s greatest innovators: Sun Ra.
