This year's Sun Ra New School Ensemble is comprised of some really gifted
students who work extremely well together. They have taken the music of Sun
Ra and made it into the special music it can become in the hands of folks who
understand its magic. Look to hear Sun Ra classics such as Tapestry From an
Asteroid, Enlightenment, Space is the Place, Saturn and many other
surprises. One can still listen in to the performance done by this group on Louis
