About this item

One of the more delicate recordings of Sun Ra's 28-strong Arkestra, 'Sleeping Beauty' drifts in on a cloud of cosmic dust, sounding unlike anything before or after. With drummer Luqman Ali keeping the narcotic funk, but with dreamy solos from other key Arkestra players like John Gilmore, Michael Ray, and Marshall Allen, no Sun Ra collection is complete without this LP. Inspired space-age lullaby music. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: One for foggy afternoons starring out of condensated windows across the Manchester suburbs. Dreamy, contemplative beauty here from the master.
