Product Description

Considering the monumental depth of Sun Ra’s recorded catalog, there are surprisingly few solo piano albums. Monorails & Satellites Volumes 1 and 2 were the first commercial LPs of the artist’s solo keyboard excursions. Recorded in 1966 and released on his Saturn imprint in 1968, Vol. 1 featured seven idiosyncratic originals and one standard delivered in Sunny’s singular manner. Vol. 2, featuring five original compositions, was released the following year. A third volume was recorded but shelved, and this deluxe edition marks its premiere release. Issued on the authorized label of the Sun Ra estate, Cosmic Myth Records, which is known for superbly restored and remastered and annotated titles. Monorails & Satellites is available as a deluxe 2xCD or 3xLP tri-gatefold cover with liner notes by renown jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and historical overviews by jazz historian Ben Young and producer Irwin Chusid.
