Lanquidity is a jazz album by Sun Ra and his Arkestra released in 1978.
It is quite different from his earlier recordings, drawing heavily on funk, R&B and jazz fusion. Lanquidity is also unusual in featuring two guitarists, which were seldom used in the Arkestra. The funk influence is also considerable, especially on "That's How I Feel". The mentioned track also contains a prominent tenor sax solo by John Gilmore, Sun Ra's sideman from the '50s until Sun Ra's death in 1993.
