Spiritmuse Records presents 179: The Interplanetary Travels of Sun Ra

We’re celebrating the 106th Interplanetary arrival of Sun Ra on Planet Earth, with our quintessential selection of our favourite tracks from the Afrofuturist pioneer’s extraordinary volume of work. Considered by many ‘The Greatest of All Time’, he’s been an immense personal influence and mainstay of our shows, as is to many other jazz lovers and beyond. For 2hrs, we Travel the Spaceways – this is our tribute of love to this unique experimental musician, composer, bandleader, piano and synth player, theatrical performer, poet and cosmic philosopher.

Recorded live on 22 May 2020. All vinyl –  Enjoy 🎶

MADONJAZZ #147: ‘Valley of Search’ special

We’re exploring the world of the New York loft jazz scene in the 70’s and the spiritual jazz cult album ‘Valley of Search’, recently reissued on vinyl, with an exclusive interview with Alan Braufman. Originally released on the legendary India Navigation label in 1975 and recorded live on 501 Canal St, – a creative arts and music loft space venue in downtown New York, the album was recorded by Bob Cummins, the Indian Navigation label owner with an amazing lineup of musicians including Cooper-Moore and Cecil McBee. During this exclusive interview, Alan Braufman shares with us some amazing stories on the album and the historic 501 Canal St. There are tracks from the ‘Valley of Search’ throughout the show, together with music from Cecil McBee and other India Navigation Records gems. Enjoy 🎶
