Yes! Sun Ra .... "Space is the Place"
He was a very unique individual and musician. A one of a kind. He influenced many musicians in his time.
I like the story when he claimed a visionary experience as a college student, a strange event that was to have a major long-term influence on the young pianist.
in his own words...
"… my whole body changed into something else. I could see through myself. And I went up … I wasn't in human form … I landed on a planet that I identified as Saturn … they teleported me and I was down on stage with them. They wanted to talk with me. They had one little antenna on each ear. A little antenna over each eye. They talked to me. They told me to stop [attending college] because there was going to be great trouble in schools … the world was going into complete chaos … I would speak [through music], and the world would listen. That's what they told me"
