Sun Ra Jazz Messiah

A Book by Mississippi Mahn Shop now

Jazz music mystic genius Sun Ra, along with his Arkestra, inspired a virtual cottage industry of Ra-reflective bands from Hawkwind and Can to George Clinton’s Parliafunkadelicment Thang. Sun Ra’s musical style was just the tip of a deeply intellectual philosophy that transcended black culture and spoke to all of humanity, and his vision has inspired audiences around the world that continue to this day to follow his perspective.

This book first runs Sun Ra’s profound and interplanetary ideology through the alembic of Mississippi Mahn’s mind to make a statement about the state of the universe; then moves to reportage to determine whether Sun Ra is real or, as some allege, a gimmick; and ends with a lengthy interview with Sun Ra that will let you, dear reader, decide for yourself.
