June Tyson - Saturnian Queen of the Sun Ra Arkestra
Brand new. Sealed album.
THE FIRST-EVER COLLECTION OF JUNE TYSON VOCAL PERFORMANCES WITH SUN RA AND HIS ARKESTRA
Undoubtedly the most sublime constellation in the Sun Ra cosmos, June Tyson’s voice is the perfect guide through one of the most challenging and varied musical legacies ever created. Capable of fierce and sassy declamations as well as intricate melodic weavings, June's voice transcends genre. This first-ever collection affirms June Tyson’s unassailable gravity in Sun Ra’s realm, and features some of June's most popular numbers along with previously unissued tracks. The LP includes a full color zine-style insert with rare Tyson family photos and extensive liner notes by Cat Celebrezze.
As one of Sun Ra’s closest artistic collaborators for almost 25 years, June Tyson represented Afrofuturism as boldly and powerfully as her Saturnian leader. He was the king of Afrofuturism and June was the queen.
