Geoff Winston enjoyed hearing the Sun Ra Arkestra very recently, back in April at the Islington Assembly rooms. He got this fabulously characterful drawing of Marshall Allen, and REVIEWED THE GIG. So it felt like the most natural thing to do to try to go and hear them again on the final night of their 3-day Cafe Oto residency, and capture likenesses of some of the other Arkestra members. Here is a selection:
