Description

This year its been 10 years since jazz legend and philosopher Sun Ra died. Therefore Kindred Spirits is released a dedication album and what a way to do it! Many contemporary artists / producers from different parts of the music spectrum have been asked to do a cover or inspiration. They all had one thing in common: they were heavily inspired and/or influenced by the live and music of Sun Ra. On a straight jazz tip are Francisco Moras (drummer of Sun Ras band, the Arkestra) Outerzone Band, Madlibs Yesterdays New Quintet (feat. Dudley Perkins) and Mocky. Jimi Tenor gives Love In Outta Space a soul twist and also Kirk Degiorgio as Offworld comes with a souled out cover of Astro Black. Recloose and Theo keep it slightly house and Mustang remains close to his offbeat production, while LA based Build An Ark debuts with a African vibed cover of Door Of The Cosmos. King Britt pays homage to his fellow Philly musician on a hip hop tip, while Philip Charles closes off in synthesizer wonderland. We could keep on describing this, but in essence it is all jazz, an experiment, put together by many of the great musicians of today. Sun Ra lives onforever.
