Charlie Morrow recalls:
“At the 1989 Summer Solstice Festival,Featuring Sun Ra Arkestra. Prior to this historic performance on March 1989, 3, Sun Ra planned the performance andHe came to New York to interview me at the studio of Charles Morrow Associates.Members of Sun Ra Arkestra, some of my team and a cameraman were present.When you enter the sound studio,Sun Ra asked to record the discussion.What he said was more than anyone expected.I pressed record on the tape recorder.

What Sun Ra recorded was a breathtaking expression of his emotions and strong beliefs, mixed with personal memories and anecdotes.Some of the questions I asked him about the summer solstice and the sun, and thoughts about the dawn event, touched his mind.He climaxed when I started jamming with Sun Ra on Conche Horn, setting off on a non-stop journey of story and concept bounce.Our duo, with the sound of explosive conch breathHe confirmed Sun Ra's points line by line, driving him to the climax.

The 1989 summer solstice event wasIt was a connection between Sun Ra, his musicians and fans, and my large gatherings and work with the New Wilderness Foundation. This event will live on in 2023 and beyond. Recital's Sean McCannI was drawn to Sun Ra's words and decided to create this edition.Sun Ra's words seem to have even greater resonance today.Sun Ra is calling out the evil deeds of those who are on the side of justice, and the disturbance of good deeds committed by evil people who call themselves evil. "I have always believed that music has the potential to lead everyone to a better place."

By Charlie Morrow, 2023 Helsinki, Finland:

“My 1989 Summer Solstice Celebration featured Sun Ra and his Arkestra. On March 29, 1989, ahead of this historical performance, Sun Ra came to New York to plan the performance and do an interview with me in the Charles Morrow Associates studio. There were members of the Sun Ra Arkestra, some of my team, and a photographer present. Once in the sound studio, Sun Ra wanted to record the discussion. What he says is so much more than anyone expected. I pushed record on the tape recorder, which quietly took it all in.

What Sun Ra recorded is a breathtaking expression of his feelings and strong convictions, illustrated with personal memories and stories. My few questions to him about the upcoming Solstice and about the sun and his thoughts about a dawn event triggered his mind. He launched into a nonstop journey of ricocheting stories and concepts, climaxing when I started jamming with Sun Ra on conch horn. Our duo drives to a climactic peak with explosive conch breath sounds giving line-by-line affirmations to Sun Ra's points.

The 1989 Summer Solstice event brought together Sun Ra and his constellation of musicians and fans with my large-scale gatherings and work with the New Wilderness Foundation. Here in 2023 and beyond, the events live again. Sean McCann of Recital was drawn to Sun Ra's words, which inspired the production of this edition. Sun Ra's words seem to have an even greater resonance in present time. Ra is calling out the turbulence of the bad actions of the righteous and the good actions that an evil man, as he dubs himself , can perform, all the time believing that music has the possibility to bring all humans to a better place.”
