Strange Strings by Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity. This is an album without a genre, and demands an adventurous aesthetic on the part of the listener. Even in the eclectic and extensive Sun Ra catalog, Strange Strings stands alone. Strange Strings is an album by the American Jazz musician Sun Ra and his Astro Infinity Arkestra. Recorded in 1966, the album was released by 1967 on Sun Ra's own Saturn label. The record was reissued on compact disc by Atavistic in 2007. Strange Strings is a somewhat legendary album from the mid-'60s. Worlds Approaching is a great tune, anchored by a bass ostinato and timpani and featuring several fantastic solos.

The Arkestra uses here a huge range of strings instruments, from the usual like double bass and viola, to the exotic ones ukelin, bandura, zither,dutar and others, identified in the original liner notes as electronic strings, but that were acoustic instruments amplified with microphones placed very close to the sound hole, and then treated with reverb and distortion.

Find the latest tracks, albums, and images from Sun Ra & His Sun Ras vast-as-outer-space discography, the album that orbits the furthest away from the known jazz universe is Strange Strings. Calling it a study in ignorance, Ra directed his Arkestra stalwarts to pick up unusual stringed instruments and homemade percussion with which they had little familiarity, and improvise without any guidelines or direction the resulting record is one of Ras best


This is one crazy-ass record!

Besides being one of the rarer Ra outings is very string-heavy, which is very unusual for Ra, with every single member of the ensemble joining in the attack.

On top of that there is this weird gargling vocal thing going on. Seriously, it sounds like the man has a throat full of Listerine.

This is also the first Sun Ra record I ever heard. I bought it at a 2nd hand shop around 1972-73 after hearing my high school math teacher tell me about a Ra gig he saw at the Stanford University planetarium.
