Sun Ra: The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra - 60th Anniversary Edition

Read "The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra - 60th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Sun Ra: Ten Great AfroFuturist Albums

Read "Sun Ra: Ten Great AfroFuturist Albums" reviewed by Chris May


With one hundred and twenty five albums to his name, not including reissues, any attempt to compile a Sun Ra Top Ten is a pretty ludicrous endeavour. There is simply too much great music from which to choose and way too much to put to one side. So the honour roll which follows should be regarded ...

Albert Ayler & New York Contemporary Five: Revisited, Remastered, Resplendent

Read "Albert Ayler & New York Contemporary Five: Revisited, Remastered, Resplendent" reviewed by Chris May


The Swiss-based ezz-thetics label was launched in 2019 by Hat Hut Records' founder, Werner X. Uehlinger, and its Revisited strand is a jazz aficionado's dream. The series is devoted to landmark avant-garde recordings from the 1960s, and ezz-thetics does more than simply reissue them. Peter Pfister, Uehlinger's longtime mastering Jedi, improves the audio quality of the ...
