The Sun Ra Arkestra
Under the direction of Marshall Allen
Continuing the legacy of their eccentric, keyboardist leader, the 15-piece Sun Ra Arkestra carries on under the direction of alto saxophonist Marshall Allan, who has been the Arkestra's lead altoist since the late 1950s. With a bustling bandstand full of horns, percussion and chanting, their spacey sound and jubilant atmosphere picks up where Sun Ra left off.
