blajay Posted December 2, 2011 Report Share Posted December 2, 2011 You sure it wasn't from during the above-mentioned performance with Lou Donaldson? haha, Chris you should write fiction! But I am very curious if someone could confirm whether his wearing of the turban is a secular or religious practice. Which is not to say unsoulful! And what about Lynn Hope or Chuck Willis? I know Sun Ra has his own "Astro-Black Mythology" and Horace Silver is I assume doing it for the cover art there, but is there something consistent in the former three at least (Smith, Hope, and Willis) related to Black American culture or religion or is it simply an aesthetic choice?
