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.
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
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.
4-movement suite 'Station Wagon Interior Perspective (A Requiem for
John Fahey), plus bonus tracks 'Epilogue for J.F.' and 'N.R. Rag'
