“Pleasant Twilight” from the wonderfully titled My Brother The Wind, Vol. 2.
Duke Ellington on acid?
Yes, and a lot more.
It slams out of the gate big-band style, then the GREAT John Gilmore breaks it down, funk-no-fusion (more “Cold Sweat” than Coltrane), and then the band grinds to a slow-mo proto trip hop vibe.
An entire century of sound, all in under four minutes, courtesy of SUN RA, a legit (and underappreciated) American iconoclast. A national treasure for sure.
