In tomorrow’s world, men will not need artificial instruments such as jets and space ships. In the world of tomorrow, the new man will ‘think’ the place he wants to go, then his mind will take him there. –Sun Ra (1956)
Seemingly light years away from Birmingham, Alabama – Sun Ra’s home town and the muse for his 1965 album The Magic City – the recording above has been traced to a 1979 performance at New York’s West End Cafe. Below we find Yogstar’s stellar re-interpretation of Sun Ra’s motto “Space is the Place,” plus an Arkestra-inspired electronic track called “Come Home,” a fitting title for today’s Enterprise arrival.
