Station Wagon Interior Perspective ( A Requiem for John Fahey)
para grupo de viento y percusion 

The first full-band recording since 'Robert Stillman's Horses', this recording presents a suite written for the late ragtime guitarist/composer John Fahey.

The music is performed by the Archaic Future Players, an ensemble comprised of Jeremy Udden (c-melody saxophone), Kenny Warren (trumpet), Dave Noyes (trombone), Ben Stapp (tuba), and Robert Stillman on Fender Rhodes and drums.

Echoing influences of Charles Mingus, Kurt Weill, and Fahey himself, the music
channels the tunefulness of street-piano ragtimers, the scrappy rhythm of forgotten jug bands, and the resolute melancholia of New Orleans funeral march, refracted through a lens of modernist harmony.

The CD in hand-screened, eco-card gatefold w/ insert essay by Teddy Macker.
Featuring 4-movement suite 'Station Wagon Interior Perspective (A Requiem for John Fahey), plus bonus tracks 'Epilogue for J.F.' and 'N.R. Rag'
