The righteous people got in control and they put up churches and things. They thought they didn't need music so they didn't support art and beauty. You might as well say goodbye to America, it can't survive wihout art. (Sun Ra)
The mighty SUN RA ARKESTRA led by Marshall Allen - 9 days short of 98 years old and still as spritely as ever. An unusually "standard"-heavy set which worked perfectly for a Sunday evening show.
