Source: Sound American.

Since I was in my early 20s, I have grappled with my conditions for appreciating Sun Ra. Dozens of people have tried to help me—their goal being to bring me into their global community, as in “how do we convince Nate to stop being an idiot and start loving Sun Ra like the rest of us ?” The result, while unsuccessful in that I haven’t yet overcome my obstacles, has been positive : I’m learning to, at least, define these personal conditions of appreciation.
