Assophon present Travellers Station, the second album from WAH, the collaborative effort led by guitarist Simon Henneman (Diminished Men) and drummer Gregg Keplinger (master drummer and Charles Gocher's
doppelganger). WAH have created a modern masterpiece of modal,
spiritual and free expression. Coming off like a late, classic RVG
session for Impulse, Travellers Station is snarled with the force of a pummeling rock band by two artful leaders of Seattle's underground jazz scene. Travellers Station boasts ten musicians including bassists Luke Bergman and Carmen Rothwell, vibraphonists Bob Rees and Jacques Willis, horn players Ray Larson and Neil Welch, vocalist Katie Jacobson, and percussionist and co-producer Dave Abramson.
The breathtaking energy of WAH's legendary NW performances is captured
here with razor sharp production that finds room for fiery free jazz,
psychedelic drone, big belting rhythms, and cosmic anthems. Fans of the
classic era of '68-'78 (Strata-East/Human Arts/Sonny Sharrock/private/spiritual/BYG/loft) jazz scenes in America and France will dig immensely. Limited ed. of 500 copies.
