Where are we in the great intergalactic Sun Ra catalogue? Well, On Jupiter is a funk album of sorts, recorded in the late 70’s no less. Ra engages with what was going on down in the streets but from the perspective of his own spacemind. The Solar Arkestra follow gamely, and another unique Sun Ra artefact was created.
