Marc Ribot, guitar; Mary Halvorson, guitar; Jason Ajemian, double bass; Chad Taylor, drums

Named after John Coltrane’s album Sunship, which was released four years after his death, Marc Ribot’s SunShip features neither tenor saxophone nor piano. Instead he enlists a second guitarist, Mary Halvorson, as well as Jason Ajemian on upright bass and Chad Taylor on drums. He assumes an unambiguous lead voice, as Coltrane did, but his vision for the band descends from multiple stylistic platforms: not just polyrhythmic post-bop but also Cuban music, psychedelic surf-rock, maybe a bit of vintage punk.
