....and if you think that's strange, besides able to compose and read music by the age of 10, he was also in a fraternal secret society called the Knights of Pythias at said age until his college years wtf??..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_of_Pythias#Notable_Pythian_Knights

I think Astro Black might be another song, though.


Quasimoto is super dope, btw.

ha dope...but yeah, i notice that you don't really see sun ra getting the attention that someone like coltrane or miles davis get when it comes to jazz, at least in my book. which is surprising, cause the more you read up on this guy his persona starts to over shadow his music









speaking of miles...not sure if you keep up on this whole jazz/fusion genre but in case you or anyone else haven't heard this, don's sleep:


fyi its a link from a some other blogspot not mine


from times 10:38 to about 11:05 on the track bitches brew has one of the most haunting/strangest horn riffs ever....







im kinda going off topic but couldn't help feel this is still relative

Bitches Brew used to be one of my favorite CD's when I was younger.


I agree, though. It's sad how he's not as well known. He's kind of a pioneer of Modal Jazz, if I'm not mistaken.
