The Magic City is an album by the American jazz musician Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra. Recorded in two sessions in 1965, the record was released on Ra's own Saturn label in 1966. The record was reissued by Impulse! in 1973, and on compact disc by Evidence in 1993. It is part of the Penguin Guide's Core Collection of recommendations. It is notable especially for the title track, on which "the Arkestra's range of feelings and sound is expressed in a design that's simply unprecedented in jazz

For me, The Magic City is about the most important recording Sun Ra ever released: so many unprecedented ideas unveiled in one album. I first heard it in 1969 in mono. To experience the title track in full stereo was a revelation. CHRISTOPHER TRENT, co-author The Earthly Recordings of Sun Ra. Track Listings. Disc: 1. 1. The Magic City. For a few years I had been interested in purchasing a Sun Ra album, but due to an overwhelmingly large discography and numerous phrases of his music it was difficult to find an album to start with. On recommendation from my friend who listens to a lot of eclectic music, I was recommended this album. This album is one of the best pieces of collective improvisation I have heard. If you enjoy albums like Free Jazz, Ascension, or Spiritual Unity this album is a great purchase, if you don't enjoy free jazz, this album might not be your cup of tea.

Composed with Sun Ra's hometown of Birmingham, AL in mind, if you just let him take you where he wants to take you, the king of afrofuturistic jazz has got some interesting stuff to "say" on this project. It's not his best project, but it's one of his most memorable. Or consider a donation? MISC LISTS.

The Magic City is an aural snapshot of that metamorphic process. Many enthusiasts and scholars consider this to be among Ra's most definitive studio recordings. The title track begins with weaving distant and frenetic lines from Ronnie Boykins (bass) and Ra (piano, clavoline), connected by intermittent eruptions from Roger Blank (drums).
