On Halloween the Sun Ra Arkestra stopped by NPR Music and performed some classic tunes on the “Tiny Desk Concert” series, and it had to be one of the most spaced-out performances to grace that room so far. Be sure to check out 91-year-old alto saxophonist Marshall Allen, who has been a member of the Arkestra since the 1950’s. Sun Ra, who would have turned 100 this year, would have been mighty proud.
