Album Stream: Cosmic Compositions Avant Garde Series Vol.3 - Sun Ra
After releasing the lengthy, unparalleled tribute compilations to jazz legends Pharaoh Sanders and Alice Coltrane, Comsic Compositions released the third portion of its Avant Garde Series, with the Volume Three tribute to the eternal Sun Ra.
The 32-track effort (yes, 32 tracks) features the talents of some wonderful, under-the-radar acts like Whoarei, Jelani, Lord Akton, Tony Douglas, and an army other talented performers. For someone as statuesque as Sun Ra is to jazz, the massive project does its best to keep his honor on a pedestal. The entire compilation is available for free download below, but if you do opt to pay, all the proceeds go towards disaster relief in the wake of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.
