?: Sun Ra / R Kirk connection

Hi,

yesterday I came to a friend place to listen to R Kirk: "Now Please Don't You Cry, Beautiful Edith", and I noticed Ronnie Boykins on Bass. (IMHO: the recording left him apart)

But a few month back I already wonder about any connection between Sun Ra an Kirk, when I listen to "Volonteer Slavery". The title track, sounds Ra-esque to me.

Does anyone know about any meeting/reunion, musical exchange?

Marco.

PS: If there is something about that point in J Szwed's book, I'm sorry I don't read it yet... But my copy is waiting for me at home (3000km away!)
