Sun Ra Celebration
Friday, May 24, the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame and Birmingham Mountain Radio's The Lost Child present A Centennial Tribute to Sun Ra, celebrating the life and legacy of Birmingham's own, otherworldly musical visionary. One of jazz music's most innovative and iconic personalities, Sun Ra (1914-1993) was a composer, bandleader, and poet-philosopher who sought to communicate cosmic truths through his longtime band, the Intergalactic Arkestra. The centennial tribute will reunite members and alums of the Arkestra for a special, one-night-only performance: led by drummer Craig Holiday Haynes, the band will also feature Sun Ra alums Kwame Hadi, Bruce Edwards, Ray Blue, Radu Ben Judah, and Chandra Washington. In addition to this performance, the evening will include an on-stage jam session, open to any interested musicians; free admission will be given to any musician who brings an instrument for the jam session. Throughout the night, the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame's museum will also feature an art exhibit including both visual art and live, interactive models. Refreshments will be provided by the Cahaba Brewing Company.
