Gilles Peterson présente Sun Ra and his Arkestra

” J’ai rêvé que je devais jouer “Love In Outer Space” déguisé en Sun Ra dans une version futuriste de X-Factor”, explique Gilles Peterson dans le généreux livret de la compilation To Those of Earth… And Other Worlds. Disponible en versions 2-CDs et double-vinyle+CD, cette anthologie personnalisée de Sun Ra and his Arkestra aligne 34 titres puisés parmi les 125 (!) albums du Flash Gordon du cosmic jazz à côté duquel les délires afronautes de George Clinton passeraient pour des trajets en TER.

GP-Sun-Ra-final-hi-res-cover-300x300Comme c’est le cas dans toutes les compilations de choix de Gilles Peterson, l’intégrité des titres est respectée et To Those of Earth… And Other Worlds s’écoute comme une mixtape de près de deux heures alternants jazz progressif (“Sleeping Beauty, 1979″), instrumentaux proto-Floydiens (“India”), chansons doo-wop (‘”Dreaming”, 1955) et extraits live, dont un “Space is the Place” capturé à Zurich en 1987. La présence de titres rares disponibles pour la première fois en CD et plusieurs inédits capturés sur les scènes françaises en 1980 agrémentent également une anthologie susceptible de fournir une excellente porte d’entrée dans l’univers parallèle de Sun Ra.
