Jazz In Silhouette

Jazz In Silhouette

Jazz in Silhouette is the quintessential record of Sun Ra's late 1950s Chicago period.

Artist: Sun Ra

Genre: Jazz

Label: Fat Cat

Release date:

Recorded and issued in 1959, it marks a coda for the bandleader's bebop / hard-bop stage, as his interstellar traveller persona began to transform the band (and the music). It also charts the future, showcasing the brilliant tenor sax stylings of John Gilmore, and introduces the iconic playing of Arkestra mainstays Marshall Allen, Pat Patrick, and Ronnie Boykins. Many of the early works on these recordings would remain staples in Arkestra set lists for the rest of Sun Ra's life. This expanded edition includes the complete, contemporaneous Sound Sun Pleasure, rare stereo mixes, and bonus tracks.
