sun ra at paul's mall in boston 6

As I recall, the Paul's Mall shows were in the fall of 1974. Sun Ra had previously played Boston at the Boston Tea Party in 1968, a psychedelic ballroom patterned after the Fillmore, etc. This was the Arkestra's 2nd trip up here.


Interesting to note the refernces in that article to their show here (boston) in '78 with Bill Sebastian and the OVC, which has been a topic on the Adventure:Equation website. Bill made the "Calling Planet Earth" video which is available for viewing there - http://fromnowherehere.blogspot.com/

sun ra at paul's mall in boston 6






I saw Sun Ra at the Boston Globe Jazz Festival
around 1968.  I'm not sure of the year and would appreciate the date, if
anyone has it.  It was the first time I saw the Arkestra.  The show
had Nina Simone, Hugh Masakela, and somebody else kind of mainstream (anybody
know who?) and when the Arkestra came on to end the evening, there was an
unbelievable mass exodus from the theater.  I never saw anything like
it.  We went with our neighbors, who wanted to leave, but I planned ahead
and had driven. I told them that this was what I came to hear.  Of course,
Ra also played the Newport Jazz Festival in July 1969.
