Sun Ra on television

This clip features a short interview with jazz-being from Saturn, Sun Ra + some music with Sun Ra and his Arkestra. "That's what this planet has to do - adjust themselves to another way of thinkin, of bein'.

I saw Sun Ra play in NYC in the early 80s. They wee doing a tribute to Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington. I didn't know anything about them at all at the time, except that Sun Ra was from Saturn, and since you don't get to see folks from Saturn all the time, it seemed like we ought to see the show.
