Limitierte 180g Vinyl Reissue des 1974er Solo Albums des legendären SUN RA Bassisten Ronnie Boykins (1935-1980). Die Arbeit daran hatte er eigentlich schon 10 Jahre zuvor begonnen - die tatsächlichen Sessions startetetn aber erst im Februar 1974 und stellen nicht nur seinen Fähigkeiten am Bass sondern auch als Komponist und Arrangeur unter Beweis.
Legendary Sun Ra bassist Ronnie Boykins (1935 1980) stepped out on his own for his first and only release as a leader on The Will Come, Is Now. He was invited by ESP in 1964 to record his own album, and in February 1974, he told ESP that he was finally ready, and the session took place later that month. This recording not only features Boykins's solid abilities as a bassist, including his marvelous arco work, but also his talents as a composer and arranger. In addition, one is treated to an all natural bass sound, a rare sound during this particular era of jazz history. In septet format, Boykinss' six originals create a variety of moods and textures that not only evoke the music of Sun Ra but also reflect Boykins's own sensibilities as an artist.
Original pressings, made just before ESP Disk’ went on hiatus for forty years and thus less common than other ESP LPs, often go for upwards of $150. This limited edition of 500 is on black 180 gram vinyl and features the original artwork.
