Sun Ra Arkestra

Plutonian Nights / Reflects Motion (Part 1)

Label: Modern Harmonic

Format: Vinyl 7"

Out of stock

"Plutonian Nights," the opening jam from the 1959 Afrofuturist classic album Nubians of Plutonia, is Sun Ra's quintessential, astro-majestic party joint. Among the top grooves in his immense catalog, Ra reveals his love for R&B is inseparable from his embrace of Jazz. (He once told bassist Richard Evans, "We don't play Jazz, we play Dazz.") Pat Patrick's bari sax morphs into a Fender bass, while the swinging flow of John Gilmore & Co. gives new meaning to the notion of 'Blowing' (Out From Chicago). Remastered for top-down cruise control and better breathing. "Reflects Motion" is breakbeat heaven from the groundbreaking early-60s Choreographer's Workshop sessions, long buried in the deep space vaults. Marshall Allen's flute whispers betwixt Scoby Stroman's drums transmuted via Tommy “Bugs” Hunter's ghostly signature tape reverb. Down to the striking reminiscence of the vocal melody pattern, a direct predecessor (two decades prior) to King Tubby meets Augustus Pablo. Inna Space-Fire Dub Style.
