Mining the spaceways with Sun Ra compositions and original compositions, this large band extends the ideas of the Arkestra while making room for modern like-minded players.

Some Ra

Rake-Star: Some Ra (Spool)
Label: Spool    
Released in: Canada    

"Rake-Star nails the Ra mantra-approach with their huge sound. The band is heavy on the bottom end and the reeds suggest floating in a zone removed from earth's gravitational pull. Even though the listener can't see the dancer, this live recording is reminiscent of a Sun Ra performance filled with theatrical and musical spectacle.

Replication is an artistic no-no when playing the compositions of departed masters. The key is to invigorate the music with integrity. Rake-star demonstrate that they can take the music of a shining star like Sun Ra, apply their own artistic acumen, and come up with...aesthetically high caliber music."-Laurence Svirchev, Coda
