The Sun Ra Arkestra directed by Marshall Allen stopped in New Orleans for two nights at the Music Box Village. The iconic avant-garde band gave a powerful performance on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
Under the direction of 94 year-old saxophonist and original Arkestra member Marshall Allen, this institution of wholesome avant-garde music is alive and well. Performing music written by Sun Ra including “Space Is The Place,” “Rocket Number 9 Take Off For The Planet Venus” and “Love In Outter Space,” the group traveled through the country illuminating their audiences with a gateway to space and higher truths.
