Sun Ra El Is A Sound Of Joy / Black Sky And Blue Moon

Modern Harmonic
  • 1. El Is A Sound Of Joy
  • 2. Black Sky And Blue Moon

"El is A Sound of Joy" appeared on the very first Saturn LP, Super-Sonic Jazz. The “Joy” coda dovetails magically into the intro theme of "Black Sky and Blue Moon," before downshifting into another dimension of romantic outrospection.
