greetings

Greetings Saturnites! I just joined the list and wanted to say hi. I wasn't exposed to Sun Ra until I had the fortunate luck to sit in the front row in Oakland when Sun Ra and the Arkestra performed there in 1992, I believe. Although Sun Ra was in a wheel- chair at the time, the power of the music ant the interaction between band members was happening. I even rubbed elbows with Pharoah Sanders who was in attendance. I'll never forget the experience of that show. Since then I have been fervently collecting and soaking up Ra's music and words. If only I had been exposed to his music a little earlier, but better late then never.Anybody care to share some impressions they had the first time they saw Sun Ra live?
