Sun Ra - Monorails & Satelites: Works For Solo Piano Vols. 1, 2, 3 : 2 x CDs

SKU 28-CCMS4.2
"I have always thought orchestra. I play that way, even when playing the piano."-Sun Ra

“Considering the monumental depth of Sun Ra's recorded oeuvre, there are surprisingly few solo piano albums. Monorails and Satellites Volumes 1 and 2 were the first commercial LPs of the artist's solo keyboard excursions.
Recorded in 1966 and released on his Saturn imprint in 1968, Volume 1 featured seven idiosyncratic originals and one standard ("Easy Street") delivered in Sunny's singular manner. Volume 2 was released the following year, and contains five compositions, all originals.
A third volume was prepped but shelved, and this deluxe edition marks its premiere release. As with all Cosmic Myth releases these volumes are superbly mastered [note: they sound fine, but these were extra low budget recordings to begin with and still sound like it] with copious liners notes by renown American jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and additional overviews by jazz historian Ben Young and producer Irwin Chusid.
