Songwriter/keyboardist Jerry Dammers (founder of The Specials and the 2 Tone Record label) and his 18-piece orchestra pay tribute to the cosmic jazz of Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane by mingling their sounds with those of dub innovator Coxsone Dodd, Exotica pioneer Martin Denny and many more.

Costumes, theatrics and visuals mix with ska, reggae, hip-hop, dub-step, rock and outer-spatial sounds creating an unforgettable ride across the galaxies.

Featuring some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians. Click here for line-up
