The Execution of Sun Ra


242 pgs.
Wasteland Press, Publ.

Sun Ra has an intrinsic instinct of music as language--there is a sense of language being transmitted as code--and this also translates from a transAfrican type of construct to something that could be construed as signals being sent in outer space--he turns everything upside down in a gnostic type of way, and his synthesis is one of the few and unique blends of jazz and mysticism. {Matthew Shipp}...The time is right for a new book on Ra, and Thomas Stanley's is the right book. {John Szwed}
