The Gerycz/Powers/Rolin trio is made up of Jayson Gerycz on drums and percussion, Jen Powers on hammered dulcimer, and Matthew Rolin on 12-string guitar. The album also includes an appearance from Dyland Baldi on saxaphone. 'Beacon' was initially released on cassette in March 2020 on the Garden Portal Label. It was largely unmixed, and as Rolin recalls, he was so excited about the album that he sent it right off to Michael Potter at Garden Portal, assuming it had already been mixed... it wasn't. This current edition of 'Beacon' was ultimately mixed by Gerycz and then mastered for vinyl by Jack Callahan. Once an instrument that enjoyed immense popularity in the United States, particularly in the western New York, Ohio, and in the upper Midwest, the hammered dulcimer today is rarely seen or heard, even in traditional folk music circles. This alone makes Beacon an intriguing listen, but it's Powers' unique interpretation that takes both the instrument and the album to incredible heights. It's her flowing drone that sets an enduring meditative tone, one that guides the listening experience. Gerycz's palpitating rhythms add depth; his textural approach adding an almost Eastern influence. Rolin's playing, which ranges from carefully fingerpicked melodies to off kilter chord phrasings, creates both harmony and near chaos. He plays with and against the grain, providing an ebb and flow to the music's dramatic stream. Perhaps most impressive is the fact 'Beacon' is entirely improvised. There was no planning, no discussion, just a desire to play together and see what would happen. There wasn't even the intention to have the session made available for others to hear. Yet, here we are, taking in the brilliance and the beauty. Only few available so be fast.
