Playlist, Week of 2017-09-17

Living By Lanterns was a unique experiment taking off from and building on audio archives of Sun Ra housed at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago... in particular, Mike Reed and Jason Adasiewicz used a reel from 1961 with several sketches of pieces not heard anywhere else, to the best of their knowledge... they then transmuted and developed these shadow fragments into the pieces we hear here... trying to discern the original Ra melodies after the fact is like trying to filter Shakespeare and Fletcher's original words from Theobald's Double Falsehood...  at times it feels like I hear traces of unheard Ra, but it's all "transmolecularized"... probably very appropriately... at any rate, what I do hear is a top-notch band of excellent Chicago and New York musicians like Ingrid Laubrock, Tomeka Reed, Taylor Ho Bynum, and Mary Halvorson going for broke with beautiful compositions and arrangements... both the the studio album and the live concert are wonderful... I would love to hear the original "Reel 43" from the archives to see what they did with it...
