Composer, arranger, keyboard master and philosophical guru, Sun Ra became a source of breath-taking originality in the music we call jazz. Marshall Allen joined the Sun Ra Arkestra in 1958 and led Sun Ra's formidable reed section for over 40 years. Allen leads the 15-piece Sun Ra Arkestra beyond 'ghost' band status by writing fresh arrangements of Sun Ra's music as well as composing new music for the Arkestra.
