    Jul 02,  · Jazz and freemasonry are unlikely bedfellows, but in the s, the secret society became the world’s largest fraternity for black men, among them Duke Ellington and Sun Ra, writes John Lewis.
  2. Shakakus says:
    Across the history of jazz, there is no wilder, more future-forward composer and performer than Herman Poole Blount, aka Sun Ra. Known as much for his wild on-stage persona as his innovative compositions, Sun Ra was the avant-garde bleeding edge of the jazz genre, introducing modal composition and electronic instrumentation before almost anyone else -- not to mention bringing the space age to.
  3. Zulugal says:
    Sun Ra is best known for the extensive archive of recordings he made with his Arkestra, and most Ra enthusiasts are probably first attracted to his work by the sui generis imagination he brought to arranging for large ensembles. These span the recalibrated swing-band tropes of Jazz In Silhouette (Saturn, ), a perfect choice for an advanced-level Blindfold Test, through off-planet takes on.
  4. Vilkis says:
    Here, Sun Ra’s transformation from bop and swing master to leader of the avant-garde was complete, his singular vision influencing everyone from John Coltrane to Pharoah Sanders and Lonnie.
  5. Zukasa says:
    Sun Ra also returned to a very ‘out’-informed version of swing in the mid’s, thru his return departure to Saturn. Fair to say he nearly abandoned swing from about (I forget exactly when), but swing definitely crept back into things here and there by the mid’s even, and even more so by the early 80’s.
  6. Mazukus says:
    A pianist and arranger for Fletcher Henderson's band when he moved to Chicago in , Sun Ra started his own big band in the old-fashioned swing style in (The one-sided LP Church Organ documents Sun Ra's first solo homemade recording).
