The concert tapes for the recent release of Sun Ra & The Arkestra recorded live in Poland in 1986 were sitting in a dusty basement in Kalisz, Poland all this time. Now recovered and mastered to today's standards, there's a worthy addition to Sun Ra's voluminous discography. On this week's show you'll hear a pair of tunes from that album, released by Lanquidity Records. A diligent Facebook user in Winnipeg tracked me down to make sure I got a misaddressed package containing some rather unique sounding music by French saxophonist Alexandra Grimal. Other excellent things turned up as well: Chicago bassist Junius Paul's new Ism, The Bad Plus' latest, a new album from singer Fay Victor, and new releases from Polish and Hungarian musicians. Have a listen. It's free.
