An Early Celebration of Sun Ra's 100th Birthday
Tonight we will, once again, explore the music of the great Sun Ra (1914-1993), composer, keyboardist, bandleader, and philosopher, who was born 100 years ago on May 22. Since his music career spanned seven decades, and his prolific career as a bandleader lasted nearly 50 years, we will be focusing on Sun Ra's music from the 70s. If you are in need of an attitude adjustment, curl up, put on your headphones, and enter the world of Sun Ra and his Arkestra. Virginia Furr will host.
