Sun Ra Mix Tapes
Last fall, Philadelphia Jazz Project developed
a unique challenge for DJs, producers, electronic musicians,
turntablists and anyone that understands the sampling sport. An open
issued to this creative community to create instrumental tracks that
could support vocals from singers, poets, and/or rappers, as well as
solos by instrumentalists to honor the immeasurable imaginative genius
of the late Philadelphia, visionary musician, philosopher, composer and
band leader, Sun Ra [1914 to 1993] on the occasion of his 101st birthday May 22, 2015.
Jazz Project (PJP) works to inspire a network to support, promote,
archive and celebrate the diverse elements within the Philadelphia jazz
community, with the larger goal of connecting to the global community.
Philadelphia Jazz Project is a sponsored project of the Painted Bride
Art Center, with funding provided by The Wyncote Foundation.
