A historic Sun Ra ensemble performs at the Philharmonie, Berlin.
One of the greatest jazz lineups we’ve ever seen: Archie Shepp, John Gilmore, Don Cherry, Lester Bowie, Philly Joe Jones, Richard Davis, Marshall Allen, and members of the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
“It seems like Sun Ra was trying to give his Berlin audience a programmatically expansive view of the possibilities of jazz as a specifically African American art — it runs from blues through tasty piano to some pretty intergalactic excursions.”
