Description

Roam The Cosmos on LP

Art Yard continues their voyage into the omniverse of unreleased Sun Ra tapes with I Roam The Cosmos, an unreleased, previously unheard 1972 live session recorded at Slug's Saloon in New York. Fronting a stellar 18-piece incarnation of the Arkestra, I Roam The Cosmos finds Sun Ra taking the listener on a poetic journey to the outer limits of planetary awareness. While the captain of the space-ship declaims his message with Arkestra vocalist June Tyson as co-pilot, the Arkestra voyage into the solar centers of esoteric astro-black knowledge aboard a comet-trail jam on "Discipline 27-II". As current Arkestra member Knoel Scott observes in his liner notes, "Sun Ra was a teacher, come down to earth to spread the enlightenment of the ancients and advance the alter-destiny of humankind. This earth was not his home: he was here to wake the sleepers, and to make sure no-one would forget his message. The universe sent him to converse with us, and I Roam The Cosmos is another unique message from Saturn, delivered for tomorrow's world by Art Yard Records." Liner notes by Knoel Scott and Irwin Chusid. Limited 180 gram vinyl pressing with tip on sleeve.
