Sun Ra New York, New York. A Helpful Guide to the Many Sun Ra Albums on Bandcamp: daily. a-album-guide The foremost figure in musical Afro-futurism and space-jazz. Keyboardist, composer, Arkestra leader, arranger, philosopher-jester, fashion icon, cosmic guide. Born Herman Blount in Alabama, 1914, left the planet in 1993, giving Earthlings a monumental catalog of recordings that transcend genre.

For the song by Harold Arden and Ted Koehler, see When the Sun Comes Out. When Sun Comes Out is an album by the American Jazz musician Sun Ra and his Myth Science Arkestra. 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, after Jazz by Sun Ra (1957), Super-Sonic Jazz (also 1957), Jazz in Silhouette (1959) and The Futuristic Sounds of Sun Ra (1961).

It’s really just a trifle, but it affirms his roots in cornball pre-WW II songcraft. Souvenir programme for the concert by Sun Ra and the Arkestra at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on November 9, 1970 - 16 page booklet. "A Space Warning to the Planet Earth" - magazine article by Sun Ra (scan). Arkestra recordings without Sun Ra (post 1993).

The recording features a 1990 concert recording of the Sun Ra Arkestra performing live in London during the brief revival the legendary group experienced during the dawn of the '90s. To say that the performance is your average Sun Ra live recording means a lot when you consider such a unique artist's vision of the musical cosmos. Enigmas like this don't come along every century.
