Fwd: The Sun Ra Arkestra returns to Cafe Oto in London, Dec. 6-8

Cafe OTOFwd: from Cafe Oto, Print House, 18-22 Ashwin Street, Dalston,
London E8 3DL, England, +44 (0)20 7923 1231,
The Sun Ra Arkestra returns!

The Sun Ra Arkestra
Tues-Thurs 6-7-8 December 2011

We love a big band, and the Arkestra is perhaps [that word should be
removed] one of the most influential big bands of all time. This will be
their fourth residency at Cafe OTO, and many will remember the five
extraordinary concerts they gave when the Icelandic ash cloud made them our
house band for a few precious days. They've been keen to get back to OTO,
and we're thrilled to give everyone a chance to see them dip into their vast
songbook in such an intimate setting.

"Resplendent in sparkling red robes, Allen commanded the [Cafe Oto] stage
from front left, orchestrating, directing, and choosing soloists. He was
full of energy at 85 years old, and needed it as the Arkestra presented two
typically far reaching sets totaling nearly 165 minutes." -- All About Jazz
