Stackpole is an incendiary free-jazz quartet featuring four formidable Seattle improvisers: guitarist Dennis Rea (LAND, Axolotl), alto saxophonist Wally Shoup (Project W, Thurston Moore), drummer Gregg Keplinger, and acoustic bassist Geoff Harper. Stackpole's totally improvised music-in-the-moment ranges from eerie, hovering sonorities to hurtling freebop to hurricane-force sonic gales - an invigorating and truly unclassifiable alloy of jazz energy, top-notch musicianship, and startling sounds. The group's remarkable debut CD stands as a landmark of Pacific Northwest improvised music.

"...a completely assured amalgam of idioms in a pulsing nonce-music, a free-improv-supercharged free jazz that roars, keens, and soars, and yet can just as convincingly dissolve into moody quiescence... the selections from real-time Stackpole improvisations heard on this disc descend, then slip or duck away, then reemerge. Whether Stackpole storms or lulls, its music is startling and distinctive." - Peter Monaghan, host of KBCS FM's "Outside Jazz"
