Sun Ra And His Astro-Ihnfinity Arkestra: Sun Embassy

Read "Sun Embassy" reviewed by Mark Corroto


I know what you're thinking, the world doesn't need another Sun Ra record. You don't need another Sun Ra record. With a discography swelling monthly, sometimes weekly, I often think when will it end? Then, once back in my right mind, I rejoice to find some tasty unreleased material from a very fertile period in Herman ...

Sun Ra & His Astro-Ihnfinity Arkestra: The Intergalactic Thing

Read "The Intergalactic Thing" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Joe McPhee: Solos : The Lost Tapes (1980 – 1981 – 1984)

Read "Solos : The Lost Tapes (1980 – 1981 – 1984)" reviewed by Mark Corroto

konstruKt and Joe McPhee: Babylon: The First Meeting of Istanbul

Read "Babylon: The First Meeting of Istanbul" reviewed by Dave Wayne


Taken at face value, konstruKt's catchphrase, “Free Jazz from Turkey," seems a tad pedestrian. But, if one considers Turkey's place in the world-literally the crossing point between Asia and Europe-its crazy-quilt ethnic diversity, and its continued religious and political unrest, it's a fitting metaphor.
