Ken Vandermark : Momentum 1: Stone (6 CD Box)


During January of 2016, Ken Vandermark was invited to a residency at the Stone in New York by John Zorn.  Entitled, “New York/United States/Europe,” Vandermark focused on Mr. Zorn’s request to make the residency as accurate a portrait of his current work as possible, and to include new collaborations in the concerts that were presented.  This resulted in 12 different sets of music over 6 days, with Vandermark’s working groups, Made To Break, DEK, Side A, and ongoing duos with Paal Nilssen-Love and Nate Wooley as essential parts of the program.  Also included were 6 concerts of first time configurations featuring Vandermark improvising with some of the best musicians working in contemporary music:

quartet with Sylvie Courvoisier, Chris Corsano, and Ingrid Laubrock

trio with Mat Maneri and Joe McPhee

quartet with Tom Rainey, Ned Rothenberg, and Håvard Wiik

quartet with Ikue Mori, Joe Morris, Nate Wooley

quartet with Christof Kurzmann, Okkyung Lee, and Marina Rosenfeld

quartet with Paal Nilssen-Love, William Parker, and Steve Swell

Thankfully, these sets were recorded by Jeremiah Cymerman and Randy Thaler, and documented by the photography of Peter Gannushkin.  All of these materials will be presented in a new, limited edition, 6 CD boxset on Audiographic Records, called “Momentum 1: Stone,” truly a landmark in improvised sound.
