A compilation of Sun Ra jazz highlights — classics and rarities!

Previously unissued versions of "Reflects Motion" and "Island In The Sun"

Mastered from the original analog tapes

Album CDs included

Sun Ra is one of the most respected, and perhaps most misunderstood creative minds in jazz music. To commemorate what would have been Ra's 100th birthday, Strut Records teamed up with Art Yard for a very special release. In The Orbit Of Ra is a new collection presented by the longest serving member of the Arkestra and current bandleader, Marshall Allen. Bringing together Sun Ra highights from more than 25 years of music, the album is the first internationally released compilation to provide an introduction to the music of Sun Ra, all mastered from the original tapes.
