Sun Ra - Cosmic Tones For Mental Therapy and Art Forms of Dimensions Tomorrow

"Cosmic Tones functions as a kind of blueprint for the sort of large-scale jazz weirdness that would inform much of Sun-Ra's subsequent works, featuring the woozy reeds of And Otherness and the afro-jazz experiments of Thither And Yon. On Adventure Equation a space echo treatment on the recording which is reprised for the sax flurries on Voice Of Space making the whole experience even more disorientating than it already would be."

This otherworldly, brilliant release was recorded in 1963 and released 1967.
