Stone Raft is a quartet consisting of veteran improvisers Josh Allen (tenor saxophone), Tom Weeks (alto saxophone), Tim Duff (bass), and Aaron Levin (drums) formed in 2017 in Oakland, CA. Billing themselves as "West Coast energy music for continental secessionists", Stone Raft performs powerful free improv in the spirit of Charles Gayle, Milford Graves, Peter Brötzmann, and Sonny Simmons. Their music incorporates intense polyphony, atavistic vigor, and avant-garde technique.
