"An amazing live date from Sun Ra & The Arkestra recorded in Cairo in 1971, with a very transcendent sound overall! Ra and the group are clearly inspired to be working in the shadow of the pyramids and their music sometimes has Eastern overtones, a bit in the manner of Salah Ragab yet at other times, things get quite outside and noisy too! The keyboards are especially wonderful adding in the electronics with really spacey tones that really push the limits of the music. And some of the reeds really help shape the sound of the songs too, played by John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute and alto, Danny Thompson on baritone and flute, Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Danny Davis on flute and alto, Larry Northington on alto, Eloe Omoe on bass clarinet. CD also features tracks not on the original album, "The Satellites Are Spinning", "We'll Wait For You", "Enlightenment", and "Love In Outer Space"." (Dusty Groove)
