The Sun Ra Effect
A member of the jazz iconoclast's band in the 50s, Von Freeman's musical mind was shaped by Ra's originality and spirit. French Horn player Vincent Chancey, a longtime member of Sun Ra's band, returns to Chicago to lead an ensemble that focuses on charts from Sun Ra's early period.
