In the fall of 2014, Philadelphia Jazz Project developed a special mixtape project honoring the immeasurable imaginative genius of the late Philadelphia, visionary musician, philosopher, composer and band leader, Sun Ra [1914 to 1993]. This unique challenge provided an exciting opportunity for DJs, producers, musicians, singers, poets, rappers and others to spread their wings.

The series will launch at the Barnes Foundation on Friday, December 8th, 2017 with an intriguing performance presenting the Intersection band and additional performers. Musical selections will be shared by Sun Ra and former Arkestra members, as well as other worldly tunes by such diverse artists as Parliament/Funkadelic, Outkast, Benny Golson, Talking Heads, Earth, Wind & Fire, Albert King, Nona Hendryx, David Bowie, Return To Forever, John Coltrane & more
