Supersonic Jazz provides early evidence that Ra is a primary shaper of the modern twists on traditional jazz that began to blossom in the 1960's. For example, the blues, "Super Blonde, " is swinging, yet gloriously unglued, light years away from the typical flatted-third blues cliches. This 1956 recording also features Ra on electronic piano, reaffirming his position as the first jazz musician to explore the use of electronic keyboards. The vinyl debut for his now famed Arkestra.

"...[this] will prove a revelation to anyone nurtured on rock & roll...This kind of instrumentation would be considered sacrilegious by the jazz world for at least another decade..." - Rolling Stone 5 Stars
