From Earshot Jazz: Half of the powerful, late-and-lamented Stinkhorn reemerged a couple of years back as Sunship – named, of course, for the mighty John Coltrane Quartet album of the early 1960s. The guitarist from Stinkhorn, Brian Heaney, and the horn player, Michael Monhart, teamed up with bassist Andrew Luthringer and drummer David Revelli (Grassy Knoll) for a new lineup of outstanding range and imagination. Then, the band’s distinctive sound and approach drew the attention, and quickly the membership, of trombone virtuoso and Seattle new-music legend Stuart Dempster. The result is a quintet quite unlike any other, always transporting, joyful, and meditative whether in full flight or free floe. At the Chapel Performance Space in Wallingford, tonight and also on 7/23) where they collaborate with the room’s sonorous vaulted-ceiling performance space, formerly a chapel.
