Arkestra plays on


*Sun-Ra said he was teleported to Saturn

when he was in college.  He was one of, if

not, the first artists to use electric synthesizers in jazz.

His band was called The Solar Arkestra

(a deliberate re-spelling of orchestra)

He was also known as a cosmic philosopher.

“A certain beat, A sudden chord, These things charm the mind, With veiled enchantment, that lingers long after the song is done”
