Sun Ra


Space is the Place! Sun Ra arrived on Earth in 1914 while the sun was in Gemini. During his time here he invented, pioneered, and transformed the genre of "space music" jazz, recording over a hundred albums and launching the careers of many of the great names of jazz. Sun Ra and his Arkestra were exploring the boundaries of the Universe through music more than a decade before the "psychedelic" era of the 60s took place, and the freshness, wild energy, and cosmic rhythms of his music will open your ears and spirit, making you realize that when Sun Ra left this planet on May 30, 1993, he didn't really die. He's still out there, somewhere, still flying across the rings of Saturn and swinging with aliens from Jupiter with blue antennas.
