Sun Ra Arkestra, Live in Japan!The recordings from Shinjuku Pit Inn on August 8, 1988, have been newly remastered from the master tape, and the complete collection, including the original source recordings, made it's world debut as a CD reissue!!In the 1980s, Sun Ra Arkestra actively engaged in a global tour.After concluding their tours of the United States and Europe that began in the spring of 1988, they made their first visit to Japan on July 30. At this time, Sun Ra was 74 years old. After completing five performances across Japan, the tour's final show took place on August 8th at Shinjuku Pit Inn.During this Japanese performance, Sun Ra Arkestra delivered a remarkable performance, showcasing big band jazz, including standard tunes. The concert was characterized by intricate arrangements, individual virtuosity of each player, and a telepathic unity within the band. The performance was truly memorable, reminiscent of their peak era, as it demonstrated the mysterious space music through the sound vibrations of Sun Ra, the 'mythical scientist of sound'.
