Marshall Allen and Knoel Scott on Sun Ra

This week on Radio Hour Marshall Allen – alto sax- and Knoel Scott – sax and reed player – of Sun Ra Arkestra join the show. They discuss about Sun Ra’s motherly love and sensitivity, the 100-piece version of the Arkestra that had the power to change the weather, the group’s highly unusual rehearsal schedule, and how Marshall found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. In their DJ set, the pair walk us through some of their enduring favorites as well as choice cuts from the Sun Ra Arkestra’s extensive catalog.
