Lean Left with guests - Live at Café Oto
Lean Left (The EX guitars meet Nilssen-Love/Vandermark Duo) played at Café Oto two nights in September 2011.
The first night they invited Ab Baars (sax, clar) to join, and both Paal Nilssen-Love and Steve Noble drummed on the second concert.
The second set of both concerts are released on two wonderful LPs on Kollaps. The music is great, and the LPs include booklets of photos by Ken Vandermark (day one) and Andy Moor (day two)!
I´m quite sure they didn´t produce a lot of copies of these ones, and the shop over at Café Oto has none left it seems. I got mine at the The Thing concert in Bergen some days ago.
The Kollaps site is quite modest (!), but they have an e-mail too, if you want to try: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both days they played the first set without audience present (and without the guest musicians). These sets are released by Unsounds, and probably easy to get (review over at Free Jazz).
And let´s not forget the musicians:
Ken Vandermark (sax, clar)
Andy Moor (g)
Terrie Ex (g)
Paal Nilssen-Love (dr)
Ab Baars (sax, clar)
Steve Noble (dr)
