THE SUN RA ARKESTRA IN LEUVEN


Last week, at 'Het Depot' in Leuven, BE, Sun Ra's Arkestra (under the direction of Marshall Allen) was my guide to outer space.

From cool jazz to avant garde.
No need for chemical substances. Just music.

Here's some nice pictures (by Gieke Merckx) that I found on the net.

GODS & MONSTERS WITH JEFF BUCKLEY - LIVE IN BROOKLYN 1992

'Radio show' release.

Gods & Monsters with Jeff Buckley, live at St. Ann's Church, Brooklyn, New York on 13th March 1992

At a tribute concert to his late father in April 1991, Jeff Buckley met and impressed Captain Beefheart's former guitarist Gary Lucas. They began to collaborate on songs, and before long Buckley had joined his band, Gods And Monsters.

This remarkable set combines standards and songs they'd written together, including an early performance of the classic Mojo Pin.

Originally broadcast on FM radio, it's presented here together with background notes and images.
