Brief Band Description
Travis Shook presents Altered States, a new group of old friends bringing forth music attempting to move beyond the yes/no dualities that too often occur in our waking consciousness. Although all art resonates through the many layers of experience, it is our hope that having a clear mission statement will help further such exploration. Altered States features veteran musicians who have played, recorded, and toured internationally both in their own names and with the likes of Betty Carter, Tony Williams, Michael Franks, Abbey Lincoln, Sonny Simmons, George Benson, the Boys Choir of Harlem, Jon Hendricks, Willie Martinez, Bobby Hutcherson, Randy Weston, and Wynton Marsalis.
