Leave it to Lysergic Funk. They just posted a link to Space Is the Place, a film staring Sun Ra. I've posted it before but the link's been dead for a while. So dig it, a new link. It's not really a dramatic film, nor is it a documentary or a music film, though there is music in it. It's really just a vehicle for Sun Ra to spout off about space being the place and what not. There you have it. But it is entirely entertaining and if you watch it early in the day, the rest of your day definitely won't be the same.
Lysergic Funk also posted a documentary about Sun Ra, and a live thing. The live thing is awesome, nearly an hour of quality "I'll watch some here and there and then leave it blasting as i go about my business" slightly out there jazz. Billed as Sun Ra All Stars and the Sun Ra Arkestra, the band, er Arkestra, includes Archie Shepp, Lester Bowie and Don Cherry. I don't even really know what those guys sound like, but I've seen their names enough to know they must be hot shit. I don't care. The thing sounds good.
