Presenting Chicago saxophonist and composer Ken Vandermark and New York trumpeter Nate Wooley performing pieces from their recordings, and a new set of music composed using the Surrealist "exquisite corpse" method.
Chicago saxophonist and composer Vandermark was named a 1999 MacArthur "genius" Fellow and was selected as one of DownBeat's "25 For The Future" list of most significant improvisors. Wooley, a masterful trumpeter from New York has performed on over 100 recordings. His specific style is part of a burgeoning revolution in experimental trumpet technique.
The duo's performance at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, New York in 2017 was heralded as one of the "Concerts of the Year" by The New York City Jazz Record. Their latest album, Deeply Discounted/Sequences of Snow, is an exciting new statement, featuring long-form compositions written specifically for the LP format and developed while touring in North America during 2017.
