Torrent Tuesday – Sun Ra movie!

The spectacular performances of the Sun Ra Arkestra will be remembered for a long time by those happy enough to have witnessed one or more of the 6 perfomances they gave at ZXZW 2008.

On this cool blog you can find several very interesting jazz downloads, and also the most famous movie of Sun Ra: Space is the Place.

A short summary of Space is the Place:
A jazz innovator for decades, Sun Ra created a sound that could easily have come from his home planet–Saturn. The legend around Sun Ra is bizarre and complex, and it’s one element in John Coney’s insane 1974 film SPACE IS THE PLACE. Conceived as a vehicle for Sun Ra and his music, the film blends 1950s sci-fi, ’70s Blaxploitation, and Ingmar Bergman’s THE SEVENTH SEAL in an intense, provocative mix.

Check it out.
