We’re getting a new Sun Ra Arkestra album called ‘Living Sky’, due out on 7th October. Here’s a description of one of the tracks:
Living Sky includes the first instrumental recording of Ra’s “Somebody Else’s Idea,” originally recorded in 1955 and again in 1970 for proper release on 1971’s My Brother The Wind, Vol II. Without June Tyson’s fierce vocal presence, “Somebody Else’s Idea” feels more measured, allowing for the hovering harmonic movement to glide into the foreground with the horns modulating their volume and presence in each cycle and bringing in new details, whether it be the mewling trumpets of Michael Ray and Cecil Brooks or the seeking sound flurries blow by Allen on Electronic Valve Instrument.
Stream Somebody Else’s Idea from the album below (but by the time of release, you might be able to stream the whole thing).
