Now That's Class - 11213 Detroit Rd - Cleveland (near Bent Crayon Records and My Friends Deli)

Ken Vandermark (saxophones/clarinets) and Tim Daisy (percussion) have been performing, recording, and touring together in a number of critically acclaimed groups since 2001; these ensembles include the Vandermark 5, the Frame Quartet, Sound In Action Trio, Bridge 61, the Resonance Project, and Index Orkest.

Performing in the unique format of a reed/drum duo, they concentrate on investigating free improvisation from the standpoint of rhythmic melodicism; following an international tradition that's been developed by artists such as Don Cherry/Ed Blackwell, Anthony Braxton/Max Roach, Evan Parker/Paul Lytton, and Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink.

In this band Tim and Ken draw on a number of musical influences, including many sources outside the Jazz lexicon, for example: percussion music from Africa and South America, New Music ideas of composers like Morton Feldman and John Cage, popular music forms such as Funk and Rock. Together they combine their creative energies to further explore and assemble sound in an open, completely improvised context.

Through regular performances in their home city, the duo developed a special level of communication and invention. The excitement of the group warranted documentation and a desire to bring the music to audiences outside of Chicago.

This Cleveland show marks the 11th stop on a 14 day tour of the United States in support of their new release, "The Conversation" available in early July on Multi Kulti Records. This will be Ken and Tim's 3rd tour as a duo and will also mark their 3rd release following 2007's self release "August Music" and 2008's double LP "Light On The Wall" on Laurence Family Records.

that was a great show! Thank you WCSB for making this happen!!!!
