Sun Ra was a jazz musician. According to Ra himself, he was an alien who had come down from Saturn in order to preach peace through his music. Regardless of where Sun Ra was from, he was truly otherworldly. With over 1,000 songs on over 100 records, Ra and his band the Arkestra showed us music in a way we've never seen it before, aurally, conceptually, and visually. He combined styles of jazz in a way that hadn't been done before with space age themes and costumes. Sun Ra passed away in 1993 but his Arkestra continues on, as they still perform and record to this day. John and Peter Hinds founded the Sun Ra Research Fanzine in 1995 which collected interviews and essays about the great musician. This vintage Sun Ra Research shirt, lightly worn in excellent condition, was made by the fanzine dedicated to the Sun Ra.
