Paradiso Amsterdam 1970 (2LP + Booklet)

Label: Nederlands Jazz Archief

Format: 2LP + Booklet

Genre: Jazz

Preorder: Releases November 18th 2023

Tip! Space is the place! That classic piece - in a historically early version without lyrics - opens the album Paradiso Amsterdam 1970, which shows how the Netherlands was first introduced to Afrofuturism. A pivotal moment in the Dutch jazz experience. It was always thought that the recordings of the long-awaited first concert that the Sun Ra Arkestra gave in the Netherlands were useless for an album release.
After all, the entire Arkestra, booked by Hans Dulfer, marched among the massive crowd at pop temple Paradiso on 18 November 1970. As was their custom, they were rarely on stage where the microphones were neatly set up. The Nederlands Jazz Archief traced the complete set of recording tapes and compiled an album on which the atmosphere of 53 years ago is immediately tangible. Available on vinyl and CD, with many photos, documents and extensive liner notes by Saturnite Rudie Kagie.
