Sun Ra: An Angel from Saturn
I’d like to tell you about one of the most mythic entities that ever walked the face of this planet. In my opinion, he fits the description of “Strange Sounds From Beyond” in the best and most literal way possible. I’m talking about Sun Ra (born Herman Poole Blount), an innovative jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher. But he would much rather be known as an angel from the planet Saturn.
