During the winter of 1977-78, Sun Ra could be found in Italy, touring with a quartet consisting of himself, John Gilmore, drummer Luqman Ali, and trumpeter Michael Ray. The visit was incredibly prolific – as well as recording two double LPs for the Horo label and piano concert in Venice, the quartet made a number of concert tapes which were eventually used for releases on Ra's Saturn label. These tapes became the albums Disco 3000 and Media Dreams – two astonishing sets dominated by the revolutionary intergalactic sounds of Sun Ra's brand new Crumar Mainman synthesizer. Documenting the full emotional and sonic range of Sun Ra in session, they provide a rare chance to hear Ra and company travel the spaceways in small group format. Put to tape at a January 1978 concert, Media Dreams is an unmissable session, with the group's dazzling creative interchanges set to the screams, squeals and glittering space dust Ra extracts from the Crumar. Space oscillations in complete transmission, tuned to exoplanetary wavelengths.
