The Sun Ra Arkestra made its second consequitive Halloween season appearance in Washington, DC on Octber 30th at Liv (the more open music space upstairs from the Bohemian Caverns). 91 year old Marshall Allen led the Arkestra is his usual fine fashion. In keeping with the season, Danny Thompson portrayed the bebop vampire, ala Philly Joe Jones.

Marc Medwin wrote:
If his Creation series is a compendium of his pianistic techniques, Reflection distills and augments them, documenting the continued development of a master technician, a probing intellect and a spirit whose adventurousness and creativity know no boundaries and who accepts only the freedom that comes from music born of dedication and created in the moment.

Reflection I & II

The Vision Festival in NYC in July celebrated the 20th Anniversary of VISION / The On-going Legacy of FreeJazz with great music, art, and dance. The six nights were bookended by the opening set of Douglas Ewart and Quasar and the closing set by Hamiet Bluiett's Telepathic Orchestra. Included in between were major musical offerings of William Parker's Martin Luther King Project Part 6: "Fire Flower" and Karl Berger's Improvisers Chamber Orchestra "The Sertso Suite," and much more.
