Sun Ra manifested a vision of jazz that is still being unpacked and realized a half-century on by the likes of Kamasi Washington , Flying Lotus , and Hieroglyphic Being , to name a few of his followers. His discography is extensive and labyrinthian, with entire books dedicated to piecing it all together. Recently a new imprint, Cosmic Myth Records, was established to remaster and reissue select albums from the man’s long career, the first two releases being 1966’s The Magic City and 1970’s My Brother the Wind Vol. 1 , two defining albums in his oeuvre.
All our love to Chaka Khan, Nina Simone, George Clinton and the P-funk All Stars, Lady Day, Miles Davis, Eddy Hazel, . Kane, Sun Ra, Jimi Hendrix, Duke Ellington and Betty Davis for opening the gates of paradise and pushing us through.
