Sun Ra Arkestra Pays Tribute to Marshall Allen

Marshall Allen will celebrate his 80th birthday this Tuesday at New York City’s famed St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Part of the ninth annual Vision Festival, Allen will perform a brief set with the Sun Ra Arkestra, highlighting a multi-band bill that also includes the Khan Jamal Quintet and James ‘Blood’ Ulmer, among others.
Allen has played alto saxophone in Sun Ra’s Arkestra for 48 years, leading the Afro-beat collective since Ra’s 1993 death.
