Sun Ra : Live in Rome [2 CDs] (Transparency)
Label: Transparency    
Released in: USA    

A great document from Sun Ra's Arkestra recorded live at the Teatro Giulio Cesare in Rome, Italy in the spring of 1980, with Michael Ray, John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Kenny Williams and Danny Ray Thompson on horns. June Tyson provides vocals, and the large set list includes both 'Ra classics like "Space is the Place" but also pieces from the breadth of Sun Ra's career such as the "King Porter Stomp". The recordings are clear and with good depth, an excellent example of what Sun Ra's sound and performances were like in this solid section of the Arkestra's existence - recommended!
