Among Sun Ra's most famous and jet-propelled anthems, ""Rocket Number Nine"" is heard here in one of the earliest renditions from a marathon June 1960 session, with a staggering, swaggering, hip-bop beat. Ignition. LiftoffRocket Number Nine Take Off for the Planet Venus, Zoom Zoom! Up in the air! Zoom! Up!"" Paired with originally unknown recordings, including the driving, bossa nova-infused ""Ankhnation"" from 1959 and ""Project Black Mass"" from 1962. More energized and driving in contrast with the rather laconic subsequent versions appearing elsewhere, ""Ankhnation"" features a feast of traded solos from assorted Arkestral all-stars such as John Gilmore, Pat Patrick, and Hobart DotsonProject Black Mass"" is straight from the Vaults of Mystery: Voice of the Cosmos in spirit-science precision. Romping, rumbling low tones, glittering, twinkling stars, wanderful wondering. Architecture of moments, milestones of Blackness. Extension out. On green vinyl!"
