Complete concert from West Berlin in 1983, featuring the Sun Ra AllStars (Lester Bowie, Don Cherry, John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Philly Jo Jones, and Sun Ra), plus two 1986 concerts in East Berlin and a fragment from a French TV broadcast of 1970.
The legendary Venusian of space-jazz is featured here in three performances, held in the 1980s on both sides of the Berlin Wall. The first, in West Berlin in 1983, sees Ra backed by his All Stars, which included Lester Bowie, Don Cherry, John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Philly Jo Jones. Two performances held in East Berlin from 1986, as well as a fragment from an appearance on French television, round out the selection of material from this enigmatic, eccentric, and utterly innovative artist.
