Pathways to Unknown Worlds is an album by jazz composer, bandleader and keyboardist Sun Ra and his Arkestra recorded in Chicago in 1973 and originally released on his Saturn label and rereleased on the ABC/Impulse! label in 1975.[1]


The Allmusic review by Lindsay Planer awarded the album 4 stars stating "the three free jazz instrumental improvisations are in many respects quite similar to the laissez-faire sonic free for alls that had become synonymous with Ra's concurrent Arkestra(s)".[2]
