Join Ars Nova Workshop on Tuesday, February 28 at Solar Myth for the return of Sun Ra Arkestra maestro Marshall Allen’s Ghost Horizons, featuring Arkestra member and guitarist DMHotep and featuring James Brandon Lewis, a tenor saxophonist that has “balanced a deep, gospel-informed spirituality with free-jazz abandon and hard-hitting funk-meets–hip-hop underpinnings.” (Rolling Stone)

Marshall Allen

After 98 years on the planet, Marshall Allen remains a brilliant imaginative force whose life has spanned nearly the entire history of jazz, and whose career has folded that timeline in on itself in myriad fascinating ways. A key member of the Sun Ra Arkestra for more than six decades and its dauntless leader for the last quarter century, Allen has kept the iconic bandleader’s cosmic torch blazing brightly while forging a path through the spaceways as a singular voice on the alto saxophone and Electronic Wind Instrument (EWI).
