With roots in Chicago that would eventually take his music to the world, the prolific Sun Ra regaled the music world with his colorful combination of cosmic philosophy, new jazz sounds and beguiling stagecraft, which included dance and costumes. This musical and cultural impact of Sun Ra’s work has been so profound that the centennial of his birth is an event that will pervade many of the events at this year’s Chicago Jazz Festival.
