Sun Ra/Henry Dumas Dialogues CD

The CD of 1966 dialogues and meditations between the poet and Sun Ra set to recordings of the Arkestra live at Slug's Saloon. The Ark and the Ankh offers insight into the quirkily brilliant, totally controversial, and completely inimitable thought of Sun Ra, candidly shared with and challenged by one of his most adoring disciples. The cover photo of Ra is mine. Click on the link for IKEF RECORDS for sound samples, ordering, and information.
