Across the history of jazz, there was no wilder, more future-forward composer and performer than Sun Ra. Known as much for his wild on-stage persona as his innovative compositions, Sun Ra was the avant-garde bleeding edge of the jazz genre, introducing modal composition and electronic instrumentation before almost anyone else - not to mention bringing the space age to life with his obsession with all things extraterrestrial. Across more than 50 LPs released in his lifetime and countless posthumously, Sun Ra has charted a course to space and far, far beyond. Strange Worlds in My Mind is the first volume of space poetry from Sun Ra and His Arkestra which finds the singular artist's poetic incantations accompanied by sparse music backdrops. Unknown, unhinged - let alone unheard recordings from the mystic mind of Sun Ra.
