This live concert recorded from the audience by a dedicated Sun Ra fan in Jazzatelier, Ulrichsberg, Austria, 1989, is destined to become one of the most famous Sun Ra recordings ever. Why? Because it is astonishing, hilarious, outrageous, unforgettable. It appeals to old and young. It merges past and future, traditions and avant-garde, banality and greatness into one inseparable whole.
