It has been nearly 15 years since the Sun Day that carried Sun Ra to yet another world, and the waves of effect from the infinitively creative mind of Sun Ra have entered into every genre of music as we, today, are experiencing. Especially we see his more immediate influence in the musics of artists as engraving as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, George Clinton, Laurie Anderson, Fela Kuti and Pink Floyd. Countless rock groups and creative improvisational ambient artists have followed Sun Ra’s leads into musical revelations. Sun Ra re-set the peripherals of music’s seeming limitations with mesmerizing illuminations. And like the velocity of time travel, Sun Ra’s music becomes with every moment more magnificently vital.
On Sunday, August 5th in the Old Office at the Knitting Factory, the Sun Ra Impossible Space Circus will once again perform from original charts original adaptations and interpretations of Sun Ra’s music.
Being the 3rd presentation of the Space Circus, in the past having included Sun Ra Arkestra alumni Juini Booth, Vincent Chancey, Terry Adkins and On Ka’a Davis, this promises to be yet another resplendent concert.
Visiting from Milwaukee will be Daniel Zelonky, one of today’s foremost musician archivist of Sun Ra’s music. He will be bringing along with him some groundbreaking original charts of lesser known Sun Ra gems. Also joining from the midwest will be Sean Behling and Kelly Rossum, teaming up with the NYC home team and some of the Sun Ra Arkestra contingent. Zelonky’s selections will make for a historic presentation never heard ever in the world!
