Cosmic Slim Ra (aka Gary Campbell aka Maverick Slim) suggested folks go to YouTube and check out all the remarkable clips of Sun Ra and the Arkestra. One thing that he spoke highly of is a documentary that came out in 1980 called A Joyful Noise. The title comes from an encounter Sun Ra had with the police, who went to his apartment to answer a noise complaint. Ra pointed out that what he was making was a Joyful Noise, because that's what the bible told folks to do.
For your convenience, here's A Joyful Noise.
