An amazing record! Really spanning the depths this one, Percussion in full effect, Brass section are on fire and Ra with a minimalistic approach to the keys.
The opener Spectrum is one of their most refined compositions, transcending music and moving into pure vibration. Possibily Sun Ra's best if one can make such a claim.
This record would also be the perfect introduction to the Arkestra's discography
