Gilles Peterson; oltre ad essere un dj, un produttore discografico, un conduttore radiofonico ed un collezionista di dischi; è tra i fan numero uno di Sun Ra. Il defunto artista statunitense durante la sua lunga carriera ha intrapreso numerosi progetti come Sun Ra and His Arkestra, Sun Ra Quartet, Sun Ra and His Astro Infinity Arkestra, Sun Ra and His Intergalactic Myth Science Solar Arkestra, e via dicendo. Così il boss di Brownswood Recordings, Talkin’ Loud e Acid Jazz Records ha deciso di curare una raccolta dei migliori brani del jazzista, intitolata Gilles Peterson Presents Sun Ra and His Arkestra. Il doppio album uscirà via Strut e conterrà anche canzoni mai pubblicate e versioni live, come potete leggere nella tracklist qui sotto.

In occasione della rubrica del Guardian On My Radar, Jonny Greenwood dei Radiohead ha dichiarato che In the Orbit of Ra è il suo album preferito. Trovate a questo link tutti gli altri consigli culturali del chitarrista.
