Paul Dailing's excellent blog Dining in Chicago features 2 articles about two venues Sun Ra played in the 50s, Grand Terrace and The Sunset. Of particular interest are the contemporary photos of existing artwork that survives from the clubs. Robert L. Campbell, Christopher Trent, and Robert Pruter's excellent article From Sonny Blount to Sun Ra: The Chicago Years is also a wealth of information about that era.
