Sun Ra Arkestra Support: The Ronnie Scotts All Stars

Sun Ra was one of the greatest yet least known jazz artists of the last four decades. A hugely influential composer, bandleader, pianist, poet and Afro-Futurist philosopher, he founded his Arkestra to take jazz into unexplored territories – his totally unique style drew on swing, free jazz, Egyptian cosmology, Eastern philosophy, Science-Fiction and much, much more.

The Arkestra could switch from a Gershwin tune, to a Disney cover or raucous free jazz in the blink of an eye and his legendary live shows were part theatre, part ritual and part concert, but always unmissable. Sun Ra died in 1993 but would have turned 100 in 2014. The Arkestra performs today led by 90-year young alto saxophonist and long-time Ra collaborator Marshall Allen.

The mischievous brass blasts and the grooves keep rolling, as the big band – fully dressed, as usual, in space capes with a hint of Ancient Egypt – takes off once again for planet Venus and prove once and for all that Space Is The Place. With Marshall Allen director, alto sax, flute, Tara Middleton vocal, Vincent Chancey flugelhorn, Cecil Brooks trumpet, Knoel Scott vocal, saxes, dance, James Stuart tenor sax, Danny Ray Thompson baritone sax, Dave Davis trombone, Farid Barron piano, Dave Hotep electric guitar, Stanley Morgan congas & percussion, Elson Nascimento percussion & surdo, Tyler Mitchell bass and Wayne Anthony Smith Jr. drums.
