“…one of the most compelling recordings of the year….[Respect] plays with a stellar blend of precision and humor.” —THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“…one of [2009]’s under-the-radar jazz gems.” —THE BOSTON GLOBE

This CD allows the music of two of the 20th century's musical giants to be heard as they've never quite been heard before.

Sun Ra and Stockhausen have a lot in common: mysticism, astrology, a self-constructed cosmology and (intertwining) compositional language, the idea of "advanced" musical and intellectual work, and an early, involved adoption of synthesizers.

In choosing the repertoire, Respect wanted to draw comparisons and contrasts between the two composers and address the question of how "space" influenced their work.
