Sun Ra – A Joyful Noise (1980)

This video represents a good range of Sun Ra’s many musical moods. Ra was among the first person of any musical genre to use electronic keyboards. Here, the venerable titan of the jazz avantgarde performs tunes including “Astro Black,” “Calling Planet Earth,” “Organ Solo,” “We Travel the Spaceways,” “Ankh,” and other seriocomic chants and jingles.
1980 – director: Robert Mugge

            

Some call me Mr. Ra… others call me Mr. Ry… you can call me MYSTERY
