THE SUN RA ARKESTRA

under the direction of Marshall Allen

"One of the great big-band leaders, pianists, and surrealists of jazz" - New York Times

"The missing link between Duke Ellington and Public Enemy" - Rolling Stone

Composer, keyboardist, bandleader, philosopher, poet, and self-proclaimed extraterrestrial from Saturn, Sun Ra led his "Intergalactic Arkestra" of thirty-plus musicians in a career that ranged from boogie-woogie and swing to be-bop, free jazz, fusion, and New Age music until his death in 1993.

The Sun Ra Arkestra still perform today under the direction of long-time Sun Ra collaborator and alto-saxophonist Marshall Allen who is 92 years old this year. The Big Band play fully dressed in intergalactic garb influenced by the spirit of Ancient Egypt and will perform a selection of Sun Ra classics.

Gilles Peterson has just compiled a selection of Sun Ra Arkestra tracks for Strut Records.
