24 - The Sun Ra Issue
A quarterly journal founded in 2012 by Nate Wooley, providing in-depth interviews and essays, 'Sound American' starts from a simple desire to open the doors of experimental music to a wider audience. Sound American believes that music is for everyone and should be shared on the most basic human level. The 24th issue of the New York music magazine focuses on the figure of Sun Ra. Sun Ra (19141993) is an African-American experimental jazz pianist and composer. A prolific artist, he recorded over 100 albums with his band, the Sun Ra Arkestra.
