RE Marshall Allen as a nominee for Jazz Masters Lifetime Achievement Award


Re:  Marshall Allen  as a nominee for  2013  Jazz Masters Lifetime Achiedvement Award

Give credit where credit is due and the same thing will happen to you;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;Sun Ra

With this note I am sending the contact info for the NEA  Jazz Masters Award representative
It is time for Meastro Marshall Allen to receive this acknowledgement for the great Discipline, sacrifice and enlightenment he has shared with the world on behalf of the Creator and Sun Ra;  His steadfast commitment to the healing of humanity through the idiom of Jazz has spanned four generations.  His expression of lovingkindness to the people of this planet in particular his tolerance, tutelage and openness of mind has been the boon of many performing artists as well as music fans;  In a manner akin to the formidable frank foster, Marshall has garned Ra sidemen and inculcated new musicians into the heliocentric worlds of Sun Ra and Intergalactic Music;;;;;;;;;;;;;;the Strange Mathematical Rhythmic Equations we call JAZZ;  In addition, Masrhall Allen is likely the FIIRST  Saxophonist to play  so_called Avante garde Jazz developing this concept in concert with  John Gilmore
 under the guidance of Sun Ra:  resulting in his influence upon and acknowledgement from every major musician of tthis idiom
Mashalls mastery of the Electronic Valve Instrument  (EVI) is unparrelled and uncanny in his reinterpretation of Sun Ra.s improvisational approach;  His composition and  arranging contributions to the repertoire of the Sun Ra Arkestra has enabled the Arkestra to continue to forge ahead in the continuation of Sun Ras Vision and development of his musical Concepts which are still the marvel of this planet;

I hope each of you will
sent the NEA an email requesting 
that  Marshall Allen be  awarded the Jazz Masters Fellowship Lifetime Achievement Award for his  longstanding Contribution to development of Jazz and his conduct as an American Ambassador of Jazz music and Culture;
Sincerely,
Knoel Scott
