Publisher Marketing: Sun Ra, a.k.a. Herman Poole "Sonny" Blount (1914-1993), has been hailed as "one of the great big-band leaders, pianists, and surrealists of jazz" (New York Times) and as "the missing link between Duke Ellington and Public Enemy" (Rolling Stone). Composer, keyboardist, bandleader, philosopher, poet and self-proclaimed extraterrestrial from Saturn, Sun Ra led his "Intergalactic Arkestra" of 30-plus musicians in a career that ranged from boogie-woogie and swing to be-bop, free jazz, fusion and New Age music. This definitive biography reveals the life, philosophy and musical growth of one of the 20th century's greatest avant-garde musicians.
