Sun Ra in Stuttgart 1990

When the view outside your window looks something like this:

… which it does right now, did this afternoon, you are in desperate need of the  sun – and quick! And here you are! To warm your frozen soul here is Sun Ra and his Omniverse Ultra 21st Century playing at the Theaterhaus-Jazztage in Stuttgart, Germany, in April 1990. This again comes from an old VHS cassette in Otto Flückiger’s collection, kindly digitized by Benne Vischer.

The Arkestra on this occasion is supposed to consist of Ra himself, Ahmed Abdullah, Michael Ray and Jothan Callins on trumpet, Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Knoël Scott and James Jacson on reeds and percussion, John Ore on bass, Buster Smith and Samarai Celestial on drums, Elson Nascimento on surdo and percussion and singer June Tyson.  Despite the grainy quality: Enjoy!
