Those wondering where to begin when buying their first Sun Ra album, this is it! Since Sun Ra never had any actual hits, the 18 tracks from 15 Sun Ra albums, plus two singles and a soundtrack excerpt, were chosen because they were fan favorites, because they displayed the artist's development over the years 1956–73, and because of their musical accessibility – relatively speaking of course.

Fine works by any standards, the two string quintets on this disc become even more significant in light of the marginal role accorded to chamber music in the flowering of Russian music during the second half of the 19th century. The common goal of many composers of the period was the creation of a national musical idiom based on Russian folk song, and to them chamber music seemed far too abstract as well as too closely associated with German traditions. There were of course exceptions, and Alexander Glazunov is an obvious example: never a dogmatic nationalist he was himself a competent amateur cellist who learned his craft by playing chamber music, and composed a number of chamber works: in his worklist the Quintet in A major appears between the third and the fourth of his seven string quartets.

French reissue of the German progressive rock act's 1993 album (recorded in 1975). This album is the soundtrack of a little known movie released by Philippe Garrel in the seventies. As the movie itself, the music score delivered by A.R.T is very oniric and represents one of the most representative illustration of introspective and dreamy evocations in sound.Each composition is unique and develops its own atmosphere sometimes plaintive, sometimes sad and grave. Stylistically, "Le berceau de cristal" is dominated by pure electronics from the seventies, electric organs,guitar echoes…put together to create delicate and peaceful musical lines.This album can't be ignored. It stands as a monument in electronic space music and soundtrack.

Rare CD!

The story is this – sometime in 1966, producer Tom Wilson persuaded (probably with the offer of some quick bucks) Sun Ra and members of his band, and the members of the Blues Project, to lay down 35 minutes of music for a Batman and Robin album credited to "The Sensational Guitars of Dan & Dale." It was a quickie exploitation effort sponsored by some toy company in New Jersey (where these sessions were cut) intended to sell some dance music for discotheques and parties by cashing in on the craze surrounding the Batman television program. The album, showing the Caped Crusader and his partner swinging down on bat-ropes, has been a denizen of dollar-record bins and nostalgia shows for decades, and just happens to feature some of the hottest musicians in New York City.

Si vous n’êtes pas familiers de la musique contemporaine, vous allez, en écoutant ces trois œuvres, être déroutés (un peu acide pour un brunch). La multiplicité des formes, le langage polyrythmique, les harmonies comme sculptées dans la matière brute, l’absence de repères mélodiques nécessitent un peu de concentration. Mais si vous poussez la curiosité plus loin, vous apprécierez la finesse, l’amour des timbres qui se confondent, s’imitent, se cherchent tout au long des trois pièces. Le concerto pour violon Exultet offre une fusion entre le soliste et l’orchestre. La palette sonore est immense et se rapproche parfois de celle de Karol Szymanowski. C’est de la musique sacrée qui traite des mystères de la vie et de la mort (chant de la nuit de Pâques).
