Review by "Blue" Gene Tyranny A re-titled re-issue of "The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra, Vol. 1," ESP-Disk 1014, issued in 1966. The astonishing sessions that went light years beyond "free jazz" improvisation to create a music of deeply felt explosive and gentle gesture made from sound itself without reference to previous notions of melody or harmony.
