RICH WOODSON'S ELLIPSIS

CONTROL AND RESISTANCE

RUNE 132

Rich Woodson is a self-taught composer and guitarist who grew up on hard rock and heavy metal in Nashville, TN and San Antonio and Austin, TX. His major musical influences are Tim Berne, Frank Zappa, Watchtower (the 1980's Austin metal band, who invented the "technical metal" subgenre) and composer Charles Wuorinen.

Control and Resistance is a bold and brilliant synthesis of RIO progressive rock, modern jazz and contemporary composition. A quintet using the simple instrumentation of tenor sax, soprano sax, guitar, acoustic bass & drums, there is simply so much musical information going on here that I am sometimes reminded of the first time I heard Trout Mask Replica. It didn’t really sound like they were playing together, but subsequent playings revealed all of the hidden treasure of that album, like it will reveal the treasures here.
