Jackie McLean Documentary

Jackie McLean on Sun Ra: "He's not smiling because he's getting $50,000 to be a hamburger; he is smiling because the music he writes is being played and artistically he is being fullfilled; and he puts on a cape and plays his electronic piano and walks out and smiles ... and he's not smiling because somebody from CBS or CTI out there is getting ready to give him a big contract and a world tour, he's smiling 'cause he's a king and he's in heaven. Can't somebody smile?"
