Veteran saxophonist Allen carries on the legacy of freaky jazz pioneer Sun Ra

A cohort of afrofuturist avant-jazz genius Sun Ra for several decades, 91-year-old saxophonist Allen keeps his old friend’s space-age big band alive to the present day. The current Arkestra sound is more like a traditional large jazz ensemble, but still packs a freaky, freewheeling punch with classics such as ‘Space Is the Place’.
