Philip Cohran & Artistic Legacy - African Skies lp (Captcha)

$19.99

Captcha Records is proud to announce the arrival of “African Skies”, the most recently recorded album from the visionary Brother Kelan Philip Cohran and his band Legacy.  This record was influenced and realized in 1993, shortly after the passing of Brother Phil’s friend, mentor and band mate, Herman Blount (better known as Sun Ra). It was heard publicly for the first and only time at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Illinois that same year.  By channeling the energy of Sun Ra, Brother Phil brings us closer to enlightenment, closer to the cosmos with melodies that are as ancient as time itself.  Sun Ra believed that music is the voice of the spirit, the energy we want to live within. In the aftermath of his death, Brother Phil drew upon his mentor’s cosmic perspective to produce an elegiac album that is utopian in spirit: a vessel brim-full of primordial vibes and a memo from some higher astral plane.   In the words of its maker, “African Skies” is a “nourishing and inspirational” document - a nuanced portrait of one of the most visionary musicians of our time in his prime.  

“African Skies”, available commercially for the first time ever, is the first record to be released since the stellar “Malcolm X Memorial (Zulu/Mississippi)” record in 1969.
