The Heliocentric Worlds recordings -- which over the years have been repackaged to the point of confusion, even for hardcore Ra devotees -- are as good a place as any to get a feel for the Arkestra's drastic evolution during their mid-'60s residency in New York. With the city's burgeoning free jazz scene exerting its influence, Sun Ra's music went from quirky and strange to heavy and sublime. Compositions -- all twisted, shattered and stretched --now broke the seven-minute mark. Though the playing was still predominantly acoustic, it grew more percussive and abstract, even harsh at times.
