Many thanks for this.

But, do we think it is appropriate to refer to Sun Ra's music as "ear candy" as in the NPR blog?

:-) well, they DO preface that with cosmic - 'cosmic ear candy - as
in something mellifluous.

i am very pleasantly surprised and positively impressed at the great
selections they picked to sweeten ears with.

Arkestra downunder

I saw the Arkestra twice today playing free at Federation Square for the
start of the Melbourne International Jazz festival. It was a wonderful gig,
outside on a beautiful sunny winter's day. They looked like they were having
a great time playing to a big crowd with lots of kids dancing. I can't wait
to seeing them at the Forum tomorrow night under the fake Roman skies.

I'm hoping we see some of the festival highlights on dime. It's a great
programme.

thanks, Edgar Lee, for the reports! 3 times, eh? i am a little
jealous :-) , but, very thrilled and happy for you!

while seeing them that often, do you see many differences between
performances? and, what are they playing?
