    • Sun Ra – Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens
    • 1. Disco 3000
    • 2. Third Planet
    • 3. Friendly Galaxy
    • 4. Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens

    Legendary session recorded in Milan in 1978, this quartet recording gives John Gilmore, Michael Ray and Luqman Ali the space to improvise and solo more extensively than with the full Arkestra. The result is an astounding synergy of individual virtuosity and group interplay, but it's the man himself who arguably steals the show with the rhythmic atmospherics of "Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens".
