The Sun Ra Arkestra
U.S. free-jazz ensemble that emerged during the mid-'50s. Initially centered around Sun Ra for almost 40 years, the Arkestra went through various incarnations and is still active currently under the leadership of Marshall Allen.
Note: Please use The Sun Ra Arkestra as PAN for all releases involving the Arkestra.
These few exceptions are not ANVs of the Arkestra and are PANs in their own right: The Sun Ra All Stars, Sun Ra Sextet, Sun Ra Quartet.
For Sun Ra's solo recordings (such as piano jazz, poetry, or spoken word), use Sun Ra.
