Here's a very special release for Record Store Day: a previously unreleased Sun Ra solo piano improvisation recorded in June 1990 during an interview with presenter and DJ Jez Nelson at the studios of Jazz FM in London.

As Jez Nelson says in the sleeve notes: “At the end of our conversation I asked Sun Ra if he would play something for us on the beautiful Schimmel piano in the studio next door. He smiled the smile of an ancient spirit with a childlike joy and said he’d be delighted. Then he walked next door, sat down at the piano, said “Hello Mr Schimmel” and played”.
