Legendary, genre-bending, extra-planetary The Sun Ra Arkestra moves its galactic universe to jazz club Fasching for an evening of the magical music of poet, philosopher and avant-garde musician Sun Ra.

After Herman Poole Blount aka Sun Ra left the planet, the Arkestra was led by tenor saxophonist John Gilmore. After Gilmore’s death in 1995, the group has performed under the direction of alto saxophonist Marshall Allen, who celebrated his 100th birthday in May 2024.

Nowadays, Marshall Allen shares the leadership of the Arkestra with veteran saxophonist Knoel Scott. Although Marshall Allen is still the leader of the band in the United States, he is unable to join the band in concerts outside the US.

Sun Ra’s music spans the entire history of jazz, from ragtime to swing music, from bebop to free jazz. He was also a pioneer in electronic music, space music and free improvisation.

Arkestra continues to move forward, not as a repertoire band or a ghost band, but as a spiritual big band that follows the precepts of Sun Ra. The band now returns to Fasching with a repertoire of Sun Ra compositions and Marshall compositions that are deeply rooted in the spirit of Sun Ra.

It’s been five years since the band was here, now it’s time to prepare once again for an extraordinary experience.
