Chicago Reed Quartet
"Furthermore each contributes two pieces to the book and the resulting variety of approaches engenders a winning program which ranges between tightly scripted and looser confederations. -John Sharpe, All About Jazz"
Then & Now
"Austrian musician & composer, curator, label-founder (charhizma), co-founder of the legendary Viennese bar for electronic musc (Rhiz) with many releases/bands/projects over the years, turns 50. A perfect time for a big multi-variant collection of his unreleased work: solos, duos, special collaborations, groups, for instance with B. Fleischmann, Ken Vandermark, Robert Wyatt Mats Gustafsson, Tony Buck, and many more. From electronica to avantgarde and improvisation to political chansons."
Consequent Duos: Series 2e
Christof Kurzmann & Ken Vandermark
"Audiographic Records presents volume five of “Consequent Duos: series 2” on its Systems vs. Artifacts digital album imprint- an incredible recording from Christof Kurzmann and Ken Vandermark from their performance at the Hideout in Chicago, from April 30, 2014."
Hoofbeats of the Snorting Swine
"Typical Vandermark in that it feels as if the duo is running (or careering) down composed lines, even as they blow right away from them... A dialogue for two epic sensibilities."
Audio One Tour Poster
"A beautiful and well-conditioned poster from Cricket Press for the Audio One tour in the late 00s."
"Poster by Cricket Press, advertising the Immediate Sound Wednesday concert series at the Hideout, programmed by Umbrella Music."
