    Sun Ra Arkestra

    In the half-between world,
    Dwell they: The Tone Scientists
    In notes and tone
    they speak of many things...
    The tone scientists:
    Architects of planes of discipline
    Mathematically precise are they:
    The tone-scientists. - Sun Ra

    Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, perhaps returning to Saturn, the planet of his birth.

    Sun Ra was one of the great big-band leaders, pianists, and surrealists of jazz.

    He was unparalleled for his purposeful outlandishness, and as a man who exerted a powerful influence over a vast array of artists.

    The venerable musical genius Marshall Allen now leads the band of 14+ members who will grace the stage in this Pittsburgh performance.

Charlotte Ka: “I describe my work as Afro-Futurism (a term first coined by Sun Ra), as I have been influenced by the innovations and influences of my ancestors while projecting the energy of now and the future.”
