Description

Explosive free-jazz from three masters on the idiom, recorded live on tour in the UK during 2008.

Barry Guy remarks: "The music was like an initiation, a very special meeting of three practitioners in the arcane art of improvisation. It was electric, with all channels of communication tuned to the maximum sensitivity." Ken Vandermark is one of the leading exponents of improvised music in America he "has charged straight to the front of free music" (The Penguin Guide to Jazz) who can play with lung-busting ferocity on tenor as well as with chamberish quiet on clarinet. Barry Guy is an innovative double bass player and composer and a stalwart of the UK improvised scene. He has recorded for labels such as ECM and has led orchestras since the mid 70s, including the influential London Jazz Composers Orchestra. Mark Sanders is "a gifted player capable of seamless movement between free-rhythms and propulsive swing" (The Guardian).

Personnel: Ken Vandermark (tenor saxophone, clarinet), Barry Guy (bass), Mark Sanders (percussion)
