Ras G - Happy Arrival Day Mister Ra
As is most things surrounding the legacy of legendary jazz composer Sun Ra, the tribute to the posthumous figure from human music encyclopedia Ras G is tripped out, and positively other-worldly. The scoped-out vision of "Happy Arrival Day Mister Ra" features selected spoken words from the song's subject (and Moog segments), laced with computer-glitchy sound effects from various past space programs. It's a special creation from Ras, who has gone on record as being a very, very big fan of Ra, who would be celebrating his 99th birthday today.
Listen to "Happy Arrival Day Mister Ra" below.
