The late pianist/bandleader/composer Sun Ra was one of the earliest musicians to embrace the jazz avant-garde, and some credit him as being a point of origin for it. Be that it may, SUN SONG is one of the Ra's earliest and most accessible albums. Recorded in the mid-1950s and consisting mostly of Ra originals, SUN features a combination of Monk-like minimalism, pretty melodies, unusual harmonies and rhythms, and concise soloing. Not nearly as free-sounding as his post-1960 recordings, SUN SONG is highly recommended to those new to Sun Ra and even to modern/progressive jazz.
