This unique performance from Sun Ra contrasts to his aggressive keyboard attack and signature stylings with a meditative solo outing performed with the celeste-like Fender Rhodes electric piano. There are few pyrotechnics in this performance, and much restraint. Ra sounds relaxed and contemplative and covers Ra's customary approach to solo outings: 1) original Ra crowd pleasers (Space is the Place , Love in Outer Space); 2) standards (St. Louis Blues, Rhapsody in Blue, Over the Rainbow); and 3) untitled improvisations . It's Soothing Sounds for Saturnians, available in the earthly bins for the first time and pressed on coloured vinyl for Record Store Day!
