no dis on Phildelphia
Russell Batiste, Jr. and the Orkestra From Da Hood - The Clinic (listen) That Sun Ra clip from the previous post and this barely contained mass exaltation of brass, drums and whistles makes me wish the planets had aligned such that Sun Ra would have been directed to settle in New Orleans rather than Philadelphia. No dis on Phildelphia, some of my favorite people live there, but imagine the energy radiation of a direct Sun Ra - New Orleans overlap. He could have commandeered the Krewe of Saturn parade and re-routed it to the outer spaceways.
Eddie Harris - Come on Down! (listen) See, that is exactly what we should have said to Sun Ra, come on down! Invite Eddie Harris to the compound as well, what the hell.
