Sun Ra – When Sun Comes Out 180g gatefold (LP – New)


When Sun Comes Out
on 180g import vinyl with exclusive gatefold jacket. With John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Pat Patrick, Danny Davis, Ronnie Boykins and others. The album was originally released on Ra’s own record
label, Saturn, in 1963, and was the fifth album by the Arkestra to be
put out. The album was the first Saturn release to be taken from
recordings made at the Choreographer’s Workshop, New York.’The
New York period saw Ra focusing far more on percussion backdrops as opposed to horn arrangements (virtually everyone on the album gets a percussion credit), and everything from the percussion to the horn solos to Ra’s piano playing took a more aggressive stance. John Gilmore’s tenor solo on “Calling Planet Earth” throws the bop rule
book out the window, and he is heard developing a more extended
vocabulary of skronks and squeals. This track exemplifies the change
in sound and focus from the Chicago days…. When Sun Comes Out
is a first glimpse into an era that would culminate in some of the
Arkestra’s most renowned recordings.’ –Sean Westergaard
