The guitarist and sitar player Jesus Acedo formed the psychedelic rock band Black Sun Ensemble in his hometown of Tucson, Arizona, in 1984. With Michael Glidewell on subtle bass accompaniment and John Brett on minimalist drums and tabla, Acedo presided over a diverse range of instrumental set pieces that hearkened to a mythical past. Their self-titled debut album was pressed in small numbers in 1985, followed swiftly by the cassette-only release Ragas Del Sol in 1987. Now with John’s brother Robert on additional percussion, Raga Del Sol continues the diverse theme of its predecessor and among the many highlights are “Golden Rays,” which pits Acedo’s sitar melody against a shining violin line from Bridget Keating, and the haunting alternate of “Dove Of The Desert” has Acedo’s reverberating guitar again offset by Keating’s mournful violin. A major force in the psychedelic revival that went on to heavily influence American rock, Black Sun Ensemble remain a legendary cult act, with Raga Del Sol their most sought-after release.
