Ra’s full-blown space explorations – on the bandstand rather than in rehearsal at the Arkestra’s communal home – took off in the early 1960s. As the 1950s progressed, there had been hints of the future – not least in the sleeve art for Jazz in Silhouette – but Ra’s musical aesthetic remained fundamentally swing. A minor masterpiece, the album comprises eight originals played by a ten-piece band which included deep-space Arkestra stalwarts-of-the-future, saxophonists John Gilmore, Pat Patrick and Marshall Allen (who has led the Arkestra since Ra’s death). In a Blindfold Test you would be excused for guessing the Fletcher Henderson orchestra, for which Ra had written arrangements in the late 1940s.
