Sun Ra Arkestra: Seductive Fantasy

Read "Seductive Fantasy" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It seems entirely fitting that “Seductive Fantasy," the single from the Sun Ra Arkestra's first studio album in twenty years, should be a reworking of an old song, one that dates back over forty years to On Jupiter (El Saturn, 1979). With Sun Ra it was ever thus; old is new and new is old. The ...

Read "Calling Ra, Mr. Sun Ra your rocket ship is ready" reviewed by Mark Corroto

How prophetic is it that we now live in the second century of Sun Ra's earthly existence?

He was both a man of his times and a messenger from the space. ...

Read "Live in Ulm 1992" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
