Sun Ra and his Arkestra

I was able to see a live performance of Sun Ra and his Arkestra a few years back. Though he was in a wheelchair for most of the time, Sun Ra still shone (hard not to in those groovy outfits!). It was great to be able to shake his hand.

Here’s a video of him on stage in Japan…looks like a good time.
