Detroit, MI Bohemia-In-Exile presents Saturday, August 27th: 3rd
Annual Sun Ra tribute by Planet D Nonet wsg Vincent Chandler! Yes,
this is our third annual tribute to that great kozmic jazz composer,
bandleader & pianist, Sun Ra. As we do every year, we've moved to a new
venue & this time we're at the 3rd Bar in Detroit's mid-town, near WSU.
Ra has been a big influence band members going back for decades and now
with three consecutive years, we've really amassed quite a book of tunes
by the master. Also as we do every year, there will be lots of new tunes
added. Special guest this year is trombonist Vincent Chandler! He has
played with Joe Henderson, Wynton Marsalis with Jazz at Lincoln Center,
Jimmy Heath, Clark Terry, Marcus Belgrave, James Carter and Regina
Carter to name a few. We released a double CD last year culled from
the first two Ra tributes and it won a DMA for best Jazz CD in 2011.
