    Sun Ra Interiors!

    Sun Ra was a controversial and prolific jazz composer, bandleader, piano player, poet and philosopher known for his cosmic philosophy, musical compositions and performances. 1972 was a pivotal year for Sun Ra, he had signed a multi-album deal, recorded what would be his most well-known song, Space is the Place and was hard at work scripting and acting in a hilarious auto-biopic movie by the same name. This is a collection of unseen on set and backstage photos as well as pictures of murals created by band member Aye Aton.
