Fly By Night 280: Myth Art Music

Steve The Fly presents an hour of Fly By Night centered on the music of Sun Ra featuring cuts from the Sun Ra album Mayan Temples, music from The Cairo Jazz Band, and the Sun Ra performance of Twin Stars Of Thence, sampled by DJ Shadow and James Lavelle (UNKLE) on the Mo Wax Records album Time Has Come, as well as a cut by John Sinclair & Michael Ray from the unreleased album I Mean You. The words are read by Fly from his essay “The Myth, Art & Music of Sun Ra.”
