Seven days of jazz...The Listings
Fingers and Feet at RIT....

The Sun Ra also rises in Chicago . . .

If you caught the Sun Ra Arkestra, of course sans Sun Ra, at Milestones a few years back, I thought I'd show you what you missed with the brother from another planet missing from the lineup.  I ran across this YouTube video of Sun Ra performing at the 1981 Chicago Jazz Festival. You gotta give him his props, he knew how to throw a show.

What really flipped me out was that I WAS THERE!  I was flipping through some jazz on YouTube and . . . wait a minute . . . there's something familiar about this (I know, how can you say that about Sun Ra, I don't know). Enjoy!
