Sun Ra & The Arkestra

New Sounds

Sun Ra @100

Sunday, November 24, 2013

The cosmic composer/bandleader Sun Ra's big band space jazz might have been and still is pretty far out, but even Thelonious Monk agreed that it swings.  For this New Sounds, we'll hear music by Sun Ra, (he who claimed to be of the "Angel Race" and that he was from Saturn, not our planet Earth), done up by other ensembles.  We'll listen to the Heliocentrics & the Respect Sextet, along with Your Neighborhood Saxophone Quartet.  Plus we'll hear Sun Ra's music as rendered by the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, and many others.
