My photo of Sun Ra and June Tyson is on the cover of the newly released I Roam the Cosmos a 51-minute cosmo-drama call & response between Sunny and June, backed by the Arkestra, recorded in 1972 at Slug's Saloon, NYC.

The Sun Ra Arkestra made its second consequitive Halloween season appearance in Washington, DC on Octber 30, 2015 at Liv (the space upstairs from the now defunct Bohemian Caverns). 91 year old Marshall Allen led the Arkestra in his usual fine fashion. In keeping with the season, Danny Thompson portrayed the bebop vampire, ala Philly Joe Jones.

Along Came Ra... the Heliocentric Halloween Festival in DC in 2014 was 3-day celebration of all things Sun Ra. The Sun Ra Arkestra concert Halloween night was terrific, the street parade was great, and Januwa Moja's fashion show with the Arkestra jamming Space Is The Place while the ladies strutted across the stage was special. My photos were be exhibited at the Pop-Up Museum, where Marshall Allen, Danny Thompson, Januwa, and Bill Warrell delivered the artist's talk, moderated by Dr. Thomas Stanley.

I also added a lot of photos to my Sun Ra and Sun Ra Arkestra page.Please check it out.

Interinfinity, CD by Joel Futterman and Alvin Fielder Duo

This music was recorded June 26, 2013 in Washington, DC. Marc Medwin wrote, "Rising from crystalline whispers to title waves of tone, timbre and rhythm, this is music born of the power that only instant communication and listening on the deepest level can foster."

I provided the photos, design and did the graphic layout for the CD package.
