Sun Ra - 1979 - Strange Celestial Road



"Fallowing in my late 70's upload series for Sun Ra, here is Strange Celestial Roads. Cosmic Funk with the grace, colors and power that Sun Ra was touching on during this period. One of a few Sun Ra explorations into funky rhythms and vamps with layers built around that single vamp. The first time I heard Say it hit me like a ton of bricks." ~ Erik Otis
