Guitarist Ross Hammond and drummer Jon Bafus share music from their new improvised album "Masonic Lawn.”
Ross Hammond blends jazz, folk, blues and a diverse array of influences on his acoustic guitar, resonator, lap steel and 12 string.
Jon Bafus is the drummer and leader of Gentleman Surfer, which started as a solo project in 2006 and evolved into a four-piece band, incorporating jazz, psychedelic rock and other influences.
Together they "mash polyrhythms with Appalachian melodies, roots music and blues into duo improvisations." The custom-released album was limited to 50 copies, with a unique polaroid of the Masonic Lawn cemetery in Sacramento included with each CD.
