Space Is The Place R0 (Sun Ra) - Coney, John
Releasedatum: 23 oktober 2003
Sci-fi, blaxploitation, cosmic free jazz and radical race politics combine when Sun Ra returns to earth in his music-powered space ship to battle for the future of the black race. Intentionally created as an homage to the low-budget science fiction films of the 50's and 60's, 'Space Is The Place' became a visual embodiment of Sun Ra's Afro-Egyptian myth of salvation in outer space. The special effects, outrageous plot line and apocalyptic message harmonize with the otherworldly score and live performance by one of the most innovative groups in jazz history. This 1974 cult classic is presented in its original uncut form.
