Review

Jeanne Dielman is the label in charge of the Sun Ra oddities this time, quite the task if you ask given the bottomless pit that is the man's work. The Italian label has chosen a specific angle, though, and rather than releasing his wackier and looser shades of jazz, we are presented with Ra's early work from the 1950's that sounds a little closer to pop, or even r&b. The Cosmic Rays make a fine addition with their chirpy vocals riding high above Ra's wayward arrangements; there's some more uptempo jazz in a classic Arkestra coating; but the distinctiveness of this particular compilation is in its tone and sense of romanticism, something that the deeper and more mystical Sun Ra releases do not contain. There's even a Christmas song in there...
