Ken Vandermark records
Ken Vandermark seems to release even more albums than Paal Nilssen-Love, but luckily they are quite often on the same records. I have hardly had time to listen more than a couple of times to the bunch I´ve got recently, but suggest this shopping list anyway:
The Vandermark 5: "Annular Gift" (Not Two 2009).
Ken Vandermark, Marcin Oles and Bartlomiej Brat Oles "Ideas" (Not Two2009).
Sonore (Ken Vandermark, Peter Brötzmann and Mats Gustafsson!): “Call Before You Dig” (Okka Disk 2009).
Ken Vandermark, Barry Guy and Mark Sanders: "Fox Fire" (Maya Records 2009).
Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love: "Chicago Volume" and "Milwaukee Volume" (OK I haven´t heard this one yet, but still) (Smalltown 2009).
Check out kenvandermark.com, where you also may see Vandermark´s Twitter messages. On the Vandermark & Nilssen-Love tour of Europe, they seem to have attracted bigger and more ecstatic crowds, than they did in Bergen.
