Space Is The Place by Sun Ra
Released: Jan 1972
Label: Impulse! Records
Sun Ra's voluminous body of work makes it hard to pick which of his albums are essential. Well, here's one. The opening cut, with June Tyson providing the soulful vocal lead, is a mix of afro-percussion, chants, blaring horns and overriding rhythmic bounce. This is the sound of an interstellar soul orchestra in swing mode.
