a lot of standards. Sun Ra is the best, but I couldn't listen to this--it was too boring.
On the other end is the crazy noise, but then there is that sweet spot... you gotta listen to every album you can and note the ones you enjoy as if they were fine wine--because you can't just *guess* and put on any Sun Ra album to enhance the moment.

You may scream.

There is perhaps no more singular figure in jazz than Sun Ra (born Le Sony'r Ra), who left this earth in 1993. He fused jazz with Afrofuturism, made a film ("Space is the Place"), and had a whole cosmic philosophy. I'm not sure the best entry into his sprawling discography, but this box set is probably not where to start. It's 65 songs spread out over 3 CDs, and there's no booklet to offer context. Some of the early stuff is pretty traditional and there are more vocals than I expected. It does get good on disc 3 with the highlight being "Nuclear War," which was later covered by indie stalwarts Yo La Tengo.
