from the saturn newsgroup

A new Sun Ra DVD got announced on Amazon: "Jazz Session".
Might be a Transparency release.

'Master quality French television broadcast from 1972, 31 minutes total. This black and white portrait of the Arkestra is startlingly beautiful, and is possibly the single finest film of the band ever seen. This even surpasses ""Space Is The Place"" in its details of how this tribe conjures the purest magic of costumes, percussion and joyous science fiction truth. Recorded on a momentary stop in France (Jan.8, 1972) on their way back to Oakland after the Autumn/Winter 1971 European and Egypt tours, this flawless video recording has never been seen by even the most hardcore Sun Ra collectors and discographers.'
